MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 6, 2014

Been making this for 20 plus years. It is the favorite of my family. My kids call it Mom's Meatloaf. I bake it in the oven instead of microwave. 350 for 1-1/4 hours.

MY REVIEW

This is super good - not your average bland meatloaf! I did it in the oven though, can't really remember how long but I think it was over an hour at 350.
