5 stars with a few changes. I read a lot a reviews and then combined their ideas with one of the brown sugar meatloaf recipes. It is a total hit. My family loves it - truly best ever. and not the same old same old. I used 1 lb of beef (less), 2 eggs (more for better consistency), 1c salsa, 3/4 c oatmeal, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, and chopped onion (dehydrated or fresh), plus a SMALL handful of brown sugar. sprinkle the bottom of the pan with brown sugar, add meatloaf and sprinkle top with brown sugar. bake at 350 for 1 hr. sounds odd but it's terrific. I hope your family agrees. Read More

This recipe was pretty basic but a good starting point. I added garlic to spice it up. Also if you only use the pan as a mold and actually bake it on a baking sheet it allows the meatloaf to cook in 3/4 the time. When you bake it this way you can put a sauce on the sides too for added flavor. My favorite sauce is to mix 3 parts kechup to 1 part steak sauce such as A1. Read More

Moist and tasty! A few easy substitutes: 1 small can tomato sauce in place of tomatoe juice. Add garlic powder or granulated garlic. Use 2 slices of crumbled bread in place of rolled oats. Make sure onions are chopped fine or they don't cook through. Top with ketchup before baking. A family favorite! Read More

This recipe was great although I did make a few changes I used V-8 juice rather than tomato juice added about a tbsp of oregano 2 cloves of garlic as well I also added a couple shakes of seasoning salt. My super picky husband loved it and even said it was better than his moms and I NEVER have cooked anything better than his mom. Read More

This is the best meatloaf I have ever made. My boyfriend hates meatloaf but he loved this one and he wants me to make it again. I used ground turkey 1 cup oats Worcestershire sauce tomato soup (I didn't have juice) and some spices (paprika dried mustard oregano). This was fast and easy and it's a versatile recipe that can be played with a lot. The texture of the loaf was amazing! I will never use breadcrumbs in my meatloaf again. Read More

Excellent excellent excellent! I make this at least once a week for my husband who's absolutely in love with it. I double the recipe so we can make sandwiches for the rest of the week. Nothini' like a hunk of day old meatloaf on white bread with mayo! I also use tomato sauce vs. juice and minced onion vs. fresh chopped. It is still wonderful stuff to be such a simple recipe.

Love this. We like it using V8 in the mix and then extra to pour on top to make a nice tangy glaze. A1 is a great addition too. I usually split the recipe in 1/2 and freeze half for Meatballs another day. Serve with gravy and mashed potatoes. The only meatloaf I make. Read More
