Farilady doesn't know the difference between evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk, i think

Not sure what Farilady did wrong but my family loved this. It's moist and easy to put together. I made a quadruple batch and I have only 1 pan left. I'll make this again.

This was awful.. My husband loves meatloaf but could not eat more than one bite before he said how bad it was.. Entirely toooooooo sweet. I even tried to feed it to my dogs and they would not even eat it and they eat everything..

This was very good. Thank you. I used half and half instead of the evaporated milk and give or take another 1/4 cup of onions. Thank you again.

Great taste and it's moist! We stuck it on a hamburger bun with ketchup and it was delicious!
