My family loves this cheesy meatloaf recipe. I only use a pound of hamburger and I do not add the celery, onion or olives. I cut back a bit on the sour cream and cook it longer than it says too. It always turns out fantastic. We can never go back to regular meatloaf. My husband takes the left overs for his lunch the next day as well.

We were very disappointed, especially in light of the rave reviews. But this is the worst meatloaf I have ever had. I did not even want to finish eating it. We have had other meatloaves with cheese and found them delicious. I think the addition of the sour cream was just too creamy for us and did not pair well with the ground beef in the proportions suggested.

I have made this recipe many times, probably 4 times a year for several years. My family loves it, and it is definitely different from the standard tomato based meatloaf.I've never had the issue of stuff coming through the top. I think if you are having that issue, you need to make sure that you have formed a solid, even, base with your meatloaf mix and use caution while rolling.Also, I just noticed that I don't add celery, sage, or ground mustard. I don't buy those very often.

I hate to say that this meatloaf recipe is a DUD. I followed the directions exactly. But the top cracked, the filling oozed out, it just looked awful. I am so glad I didn't have company tonight. (Yeah we ate it anyway) Not sure why it cracked like that, but I think that it has too much moisture (maybe use less milk next time or more binder). Also, be careful because the sour cream itself adds moisture.

This is the best meal loaf ever! I don't always have the olives on hand so I just leave them out and it's still amazingly delicious! One of our families favorites!

This meatloaf was very moist and smelled delicious within minutes of starting to bake. The one change I would make would be to chop the olives finer. Slices leave you with a large chunk of olive to chew in some bites.
