This meatloaf is excellent for cold sandwiches in the hubby's lunchbox. Try it with onion or ranch dip instead of sour cream.

Awesome, with a few minor adjustments I made. Instead of using an onion soup mix, I sauteed 1/2 chopped onion and 1/2 chopped pepper in some butter for about 15 minutes. Then I mixed with the rest of the ingredients. I only used about 1/2 cup of lite sour cream. It turned out absoultely delicious! I'm not usually one for meatloaf since it tends to turn out dry & crumbly, too salty or too greasy and most have a ketchup topping to make it appear moist(not a fave). But this recipe was a great basis for a moist and hearty loaf, and with the alterations I made it is definitely a keeper! Read More

Made this last night and it was yummy! Used other's suggestions and put in 1/2 c. sour cream and 1/2 c. ranch dressing. Also I only used 3/4 c. of bread crumbs and 1/2 pkg. of the soup mix added a splash of A-1 and Tabasco. Served with mashed potaoes and fresh corn off the cob. Will definitely make this one again!

This is a really good recipe! Meatloaf has never been a favorite of mine but this is delicious. I added a few touches that my mom always used when she made meatloaf.....I sliced 4-5 potatoes into 1/4" rounds and layered them around the meatloaf and then poured a can of tomato sauce over the whole thing before covering in foil and baking.

My family LOVES this recipe!! It's a great come home, whip it together, clean up while it's baking and great leftover recipe! I usually use 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup ranch dressing. I put a glaze of ketchup, brown sugar, minced garlic and a dash of mustard on top. Makes great sandwiches as leftovers too!! Wonderful recipe. Thanks Lindsay! Read More

This was very good. I only used 1/2 the onion packet and it was still almost too much onion flavor. Taste great the next day! Read More
