Best Meat Loaf
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 1-1/2 hours
I love this recipe! I've been using it since 1995 when it first appeared in Taste of Home magazine. It has been our family meatloaf recipe ever since. The blend of spices is just perfect. (I don't use the sauce recipe, though. I generally cover the meatloaf with ketchup or ketchup mixed with jelly.) After 22 years, this is definitely what you call a keeper!
Love this recipe! First try we skipped the beef and used ground turkey and everyone loved it. Delicious with ground beef too! We used a mini loaf pan for portion control AND I find the smaller loaves cook better without drying out. YUMMY!
This is the best meatloaf recipe. Everyone enjoys the favor. I always make two and freeze one (uncooked) for another time.
My boyfriend is a big fan of meatloaf so I'm always trying different recipes. He really liked this one. I cut the recipe in half and used a few different spices because I didn't have everything on hand. It was very flavorful. I used turkey bacon because that's what I had on hand, I don't recommend that. It didn't get crispy at all and tinted the bottom a pinkish color. I pan fried leftover pieces, those were much better. Bacon crisped up nicely.-volunteer field editor
This was the worst meatloaf that I have ever made! Don't you test these recipes?? I threw over half of it away! What a waste!!
Added a little more onion, and used 1 and 1/2 lb beef, 1/2 lb pork. Family loved it!
My Family loved this recipe . We will make this recipe again . So easy and quick to prepare and so nice to come home from work and just pop it in the oven .- Denise St Laurent . Medicine Hat Alberta Canada
This is truly a wonderfully flavored meatloaf. I have made this several times. There have been times when I have not had the bacon and this really doesn't make a difference. Sometimes I don't put the sauce on top either. The combination of spices sounds crazy but they marry well. Enjoy!
All in family loved this recipe.
did without brown sugar-all meat lovers in our household, sweet later.
