Family-Favorite Meat Loaf

    I followe the recipe exactly and it was terrific. When I told my husband it was good enough for company, he replied he didn't want to share it with company.

    Very tasty, made according to recipe. I would have liked a little more sauce on top and also some chopped green pepper in the mix, but it has a good flavor.

    @ Dave I have never seen a " sick" meat loaf. I think the word would be "healthful". This is very good meat loaf.

    According to Egg Beater's web site, 3 tablespoons of egg substitue = one egg- there are 5.3 tablespoons in a 1/3 cup so if you use two eggs that should work.(it'd be a smidge more, but I don't think it should alter the recipe too much)

    Question: How many large eggs are equal to 1/3 cup egg substitute? I have the turkey and beef need to prepare this recipe but need to know how many eggs to use ASAP.

    Not a Horseradish fan so I pass on that but do substitute red pepper flakes. Gives it a nice kick.
