    Very tasty meatloaf! The chili sauce in and on top of it gave it a very good zesty taste. It held together well also.

    One of the best meatloaf recipes I have made in a long time. Using Oatmeal brought back memories of my Mother's meatloaf.

    I used a 1/2 lean ground beef and 1/2 lean ground turkey, and just made sure the temperature was 165 degrees F.

    I think there are other meat loaf recipes I would prefer. A bit too much garlic and not enough topping to meet our tastes. Also a bit crumbly - may want to add more oats. It was certainly OK, just perhaps not a keeper.

    This was good. I made it it in my muffin pan to speed up the cooking time.

    This was ok, had great flavor, but needed more chili sauce on top. Also, the meatloaf tended to crumble as soon as I removed it from the pan. Flavor was good, but wasn't "to die for." Most likely will not make this recipe again.
