Easy enough to prepare, but not as flavorful as I would've liked. I followed the recipe exactly, but should've trusted my "scratches-head" instinct at only adding the soggy bread, and not using a breadcrumb/egg as binder. I like my meatloaf to stay together well enough when sliced that I can use it for sandwiches as leftovers, and this one was too crumbly for my liking. I enjoyed the funky change of using BBQ sauce, rather than ketchup or marinara, on top, so that got thumbs-up from the family, but otherwise, I think I'll go w/ a different recipe next go around.

If I could give this 10 stars, I would. This is meatloaf to perfection!!! It is just yummy and everything about it is perfect, taste, texture, everything. I halved the recipe for two persons and instead of 60 + 15 minutes, I cooked this 45 + 15 minutes. Turned out perfect! Read More

This was very good. I doubled the recipe used homemade breadcrumbs (whole grain/french bread combo) and added about 2 cups shredded colby-jack cheese. I used a mixture of bbq sauce Dijon mustard Worcestershire ketchup and black pepper for the topping and baked it as one "cake" in a bundt pan. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This recipe has now replaced my old meatloaf recipe. My old meatloaf recipe was too fluffy and was sometimes hard to swallow because of the fluffy texture. This meatloaf is fairly dense which is much more pleasant on the texture side of things. Plus I'm also partial to fireman because I married one.:-) Read More

I really liked this meatloaf. I have been trying to make good meatloaf for years and was either not satisfied with the taste or not satisfied with the texture. This meatloaf had it all taste texture and it was moist. This is now going to be my meatloaf recipe. The only thing I changed was I used bread crumbs (1/2 cup) instead of the bread because I didnt have any. Read More

If you like the taste of Hunt's Manwich sauce you will like this. The salsa adds the pepper kick and it has just a slight sweetness from the BBQ sauce. This was very juicy and not too firm and bready. I used dried minced onion and it worked great. Read More
