"This recipe was delicious! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the combination of cheese, applesauce, and nutmeg in this slightly unusual meatloaf, and I can't wait to make it again!"

"This is one of the better meatloaf recipes I've tried. Moist and good. The nutmey was a new flavor for me, so I should have decreased it to 1/4 tsp. Good basic recipe minus the nutmeg. Thanks for a good one!"
