Glazed Meatloaf II
This meatloaf is great! It's my husband's favorite. The glaze makes it delicious and moist.

Yum!! This recipe makes an excellent meatloaf. My son and husband love meatloaf, so I've been trying various recipes to see which one they like the best. After tasting this for dinner last night, they both said don't try any more, this one is the best! As for substitutions, I added 3/4 c. of oats in place of the bread, and used balsamic vinegar in place of the lemon juice. Next time I will try the lemon juice, but the vinegar worked fine and I happened to be out of lemons. Oh, one great tip that I got from another reviewer is to line the bottom of your 9x5 pan with bread slices when making a meatloaf. The bread soaks up all the fat and then you just throw the bread away. Works great!Read More
I think this meatloaf was pretty good. It did seem to be a little dry when cooked according to these directions. I think if I attempted to make it again I would double the amount of glaze. Not the best meatloaf that I have ever had, but it is worth a try.Read More

My family was craving meat so I desided to make them meatloaf. I didnt have any beef bouillon so I added a pinch of garlic powder to add flavor. I also didnt have bread so I substituted that for a cup of oats. Dry mustard was traded in for yellow mustard. I've hated meatloaf for as long as I can remember but what I made last night was excellent. The glaze made all the difference, it was amazing. After reading the reviews I made a double batch of glaze and it covered the loaf beautifully. Definatly a keeper!
This is a great meatloaf and my family loves it as much as I do. What I changed is I don't wait until the end to put the glaze on top. What I do is preheat the oven to 325 and put the meatloaf in w/o the glaze for 10 minutes, then i glaze it and insert a oven safe thermometer and cook the meatloaf to 155. Comes out perfect everytime. I also use just plain unseasoned breadcrumbs instead of whole slices of bread shredded. Also I forgot to add that I do not cook it in a loaf pan. I form the loaf in the pan then take it out and put it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Keeps the meatloaf from collecting all the fat runoff.
Delicious! I just made this after trying, without great satisfaction, 3 other meatloaf recipes. This is moist, but not greasy at all! The lemon added a wonderful touch without being overpowering at all. I love the topping, and have made other glazes like it, but never thought to add lemon juice. My husband normally will grin and bear meatloaf night. Not this time. He loved it so much that there aren't any leftovers for a meatloaf sandwich in my lunch tomorrow! I highly recommend this great recipe!!! The only thing I did differently is add 1/4 cup French's Fried Onions crumbled up into it because I don't like chopping onions.
Amazing! I have made this so many times. I use 7 grain bread (which my hubby hates) and he doesn't even notice. To save time I also make them in muffin cups and cook them at 375 for 30 minutes. I always serve them with mashed potatoes... isn't that how meatloaf is always served?? Enjoy!
Let me just say, this meatloaf is DELICIOUS! Before making this recip I had never been a fan of ANY meatloaf except my fiance's mothers which is very similiar, but after making this, both myself and my fiance agreed it is the best meatloaf we've ever had. I always substitute the bread slices for 1 cup of breadcrumbs,and it turns out great! It's moist, hearty, and delicious! I serve it with mashed potatoes, and I always make more sauce for this one because we love it saucy! Makes great leftovers for the next days lunch too!
This was very good! I soaked the bread in milk first before adding to the meat! I also added garlic. If you are using a convection oven, you can cook for 50 mins and then put the topping on for 10 mins! Very moist and very good!
I adjusted this recipe following sd's directions. Next time I will follow exactly as is as last reviewer did. Mine came out with wonderful flavor and very moist. Only thing off was that I like a crispy crust on my meat loaf...we fight over the ends. This was just a bit too moist. I think what happened is that I increased the sauce per everyone's suggestion, and then still included 1/3 of it in with the meat. In retrospect, I probably should have not put that much of the sauce in with meat. Still, this was very very good and smelled wonderfully. My kids loved as well. Served with fried potatoes with onion, and a tossed salad, and a glass of chianti.
I've been looking for a good meatlof recipie for awhile and after reading some of the other reviews, I tweaked this a bit and it turned out great. I used lime instead of lemon juice, 1/2 pkg of cornbread stuffing mix instead of shredded bread, and a couple dashes of worchestershire, soy and tobasco instead of bouillon. It was moist and flavorful. My husband loved it. I'll definitely be making this again!
This coming from a person who HATES meatloaf: this was GREAT. I did some tweaking to make it suit me and my bf but overall this was a great recipe. I added 2 teaspoons of minced garlic and probably a cup of shredded cheese and substituted oats for bread. Other than that, followed recipe as is and was absolutely amazed how good this was!
HOLY COW this was good! My husband and I kept saying how much we enjoyed it. Like other reviewers suggested, I used 3/4 cup oats in place of the bread. I also couldn't find my loaf pan, so I did meatloaf muffins and will probably always do it like that! I baked them at 350 for 20 minutes and then spread the remaining sauce over them and then cooked them for just 5 more minutes to make sure they wouldn't come out too dry. They were so yummy and easy. Also, I doubled the onion. I plan on freezing the remaining muffins to eat some other time. YUM!
I think this meatloaf was pretty good. It did seem to be a little dry when cooked according to these directions. I think if I attempted to make it again I would double the amount of glaze. Not the best meatloaf that I have ever had, but it is worth a try.
My husband and daughter really like this meatloaf recipe. (I am a vegetarian). I am always looking for new recipes to try, but they don't want me making any other meatloaf recipes. They feel this is THE ONE!!! The only change I make is to use 3/4 cup bread crumbs instead of bread. I also like to double the sauce to have extra for serving.
This meatloaf is definitely a family hit. Definitely make more than you think you'll need. Youll want some for the next day.
I have made this recipe at least 10 times! I made a few substitutions.... I used 7 whole grain bread and to save on time, I used a package of onion soup mix in place of the beef boullion and onions. This is a great recipe to make ahead of time and freeze for later use. Comes out perfect everytime! The family loves it!!
So, I made a couple changes, but nothing TOO major (at least in my opinion)... 1) Used 1# lean ground beef and 1# spicy Italian sausage 2) Sauteed the onions (used 1 small, diced). I also sauteed 2 garlic cloves with them, and some mushrooms I needed to use up (diced them so they would blend in with the meat). I also finely grated a carrot to add some extra vitamins and fiber. 3) I used 1/2 c quick-cooking oatmeal instead of the bread 4) I forgot to add the lemon juice into the meat mixture (too many things going on at the time, I guess!) 5) I made a single recipe of the glaze and used Balsamic vinegar instead of lemon juice, because we LOVE balsamic. I accidentally glazed it at the beginning before I put it in the oven, but it turned out great...The glaze really became a GLAZE...it got a little caramelized on top, and got really thick...DELICIOUS! I used my probe thermometer for the cooking time...stuck it in and set the alarm for 165F. I think it took about an hour. (Uncovered the whole time) I have a special "meat loaf pan" insert that you put into a loaf pan. It has holes in it to let the fat drain out, and it sits about 1/2 inch above the bottom of the loaf pan. This always works great! I got mine at William Somona--a little pricey, but a GREAT investment if you love making meatloaf! All-in-all, it turned out WONDERFUL with the changes I made. I'm making again tonight with turkey instead of beef. Also, it made fabulous sandwiches the next few days!
This is the only recipe I use for meatloaf - love it! I cut the sugar a little - usually use only 1/4 cup (did it without the sugar once on accident, and it still tasted great!). When I have A1 on hand I like to substitute it for some or all of the ketchup, so yummy!! Two standard substitutions for me are: 1) use ground pork for half of the meat, 2) use 1/4 cup oatmeal in place of the breadcrumbs.
I never liked meatloaf...until this. I followed the recipe exactly, and this meatloaf will now become part of my regular dinner rotation.
This is my husbands favorite. I double the ketchup mixture for extra moist leftovers.
Absolutely the best meatloaf recipe found to date. The entire family raved about this one, even my picky youngest! The glaze is spectacular! Only changes I made was to add some garlic powder and worcestershire sauce to the meat mix. I also cooked it formed in a 13 x 9 pan instead of a loaf pan to allow extra room for grease run off. Turned out perfectly moist and yet not mushy!
I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. I thougt the recipe I was using up until now was good but this one was GREAT. I doubled the amount of the glaze as suggested and used it as a side dipping sauce. This will definately be my new meatloaf recipe . Thanks for sharing...
This is the best meatloaf recipe I have ever made! Very moist but not mushy. Perfect consistency and flavor. I subbed 1 c. Italian bread crumbs for the bread and added 2 eggs instead of 1.
Best meatloaf ever! Will not use any other.
This Meat Loaf was really good! Thank you!
excellent recipe! All the kids loved it (as long as I chop the onions really small!!) Husband who isnt a fan of meatloaf loved it too!! so did my neighbour who made it the next day after me raving about it and giving her the recipe!!
I had never made meatloaf before. This was an easy and delicious loaf, very moist but still held together. I never have been a big meatloaf fan, but I would definitely make this again.,
Love the meatloaf, great recipe!!!!
This recipe was really good. I have not made meatloaf for a while and thought I would try it last night for dinner. My family loved it and wants me to make it again tonight. My 3 yr old even ate it and wanted more. The only thing I did different was I added 1 cup of oats instead of the slices of bread and I didn't have any dry mustard, so I used 3/4 tsp regular mustard. I also doubled the sauce so there was plenty to put across the meatloaf for the last 10 min that it finished cooking. This will be a keeper for sure.
GREAT recipe!! I used 24 saltine crackers (1 cup cracker crumbs) for the filler instead and substituted white vinegar for the lemon juice. I used the glaze for the last 10-15 minutes (carefully check the glaze as it will blacken and blister very quickly!!). I also sliced it with an electric knife (one of my favorite kitcken tools)to make nicely smooth slices. SEE MY PHOTO!! TY Delia!!
I made this and liked the consistency of the meatloaf but we tasted LEMON in the sauce and it was not a good pairing. I was really disappointed since the reviews were so good. I used fresh squeezed lemon juice and followed the recipe exactly. Someone else used balsamic vinegar as a replacement. I would recommend replacing the lemon juice with the balsamic vinegar.
I have been using this recipe for about 4 years now. It was one of the first ones I ever bookmarked on A.R. and I'm not sure why I haven't reviewed it until now. Well, maybe because I don't have to look it up anymore to make it (I know it by heart!) I LOVE this recipe! My entire family loves to eat this - including the young ones! We eat it at least once a month. Since I don't keep dry, I make this with prepared mustard, and wheat bread slices.
used ritz crackers and added a 1/2 lb of pork sausage...a touch of cayenne, season all, onion powder, garlic powder...very good
This was by far the best meatloaf ever! I made it this past Sunday for our family dinner and by the end there was no meatloaf left. I never thought of putting lemon juice or brown sugar in the glaze. Boy was I surprised at how good it tasted. I made extra to put on the table in case anyone wanted more and it too was gone. Will surely be making this again. Delicious!
Very Good! I would double the sauce next time.
My husband says this is the best sauce we have tried and this recipe is a keeper.
Add finely chopped veggies to the loaf. SO worth it! I just chopped up two carrots and half of a green pepper and added two minced garlic cloves. My husband who loves meatloaf and considers himself a kind of connoisseur told me this was the best meatloaf he's ever had. I'm on the biggest ego high right now.
The best meatloaf to date. Usually my meatloaf falls apart. Loved the idea of the bread on the bottom to soak up the grease. Really loved the sauce. I did however add green peppers, onion and sage to my meatloaf.
Fantastic meatloaf! When I asked my boyfriend and his son what they thought of it...they both said it "Tastes like More!!" Made it to specs and loved it. A definate favourite for the family!
This is an awesome recipe. I have made it for several family members and have always got rave reviews, even from those that have said "I don't like meatloaf". It is the ketchup/brown sugar mixture on top that puts the pizzazz in the meal.
Absolutely delicious! Wouldn't change a thing! I actually made it with ground turkey (a little healthier) and it was wonderful!
Tastes great and texture was perfect. Followed the recipe except for the bread slices. Instead of bread slices, I used 1 Cup of breadcrumbs mixed with about 3-4 Tbs of milk. Doubled the recipe of the glaze so that I would have enough of it to bake on top. My family loved this. This will be my "go-to" meatloaf recipe from now on. Thanks!
my whole family loves it! I have reduces the sugar just a bit and used orange juice when I was out of lemon juice and it turned out great.
This was awesome! I added 3/4 a cup of bread crumbs instead of bread, a few dashes of worcestershire sauce and an extra egg. I had to go to work, I decided to try this in my slow cooker. I lined the crock with tin foil and placed two piece of bread on the bottom before placing the meat in the pot. The bread tip is genius, because it absorbed most of the grease. I cooked it on low for six hours, and it was delicious and moist. It never fell apart either, even when I took it from the pot. I'm definitely making this one again.
So juicy and flavourful. We used challah bread left over from the Sabbath. Delicious!! Next time we'll put a slice on the bottom.
best meatloaf I've ever had!
This meatloaf is great! I have made it several times and it always has good flavor to it. I like to add about a 1/2 tsp minced garlic and I love to make some extra sauce to pour on top of it! Soooo yummy!!
I have made this meatloaf as written and for me, it's a four star recipe. Everyone is picky about meatloaf. Personally, I don't like the large chunks of bread in the meatloaf, but the flavor is fantastic. This has become my base recipe for meatloaf and I make a few changes for taste and dietary reasons. I substitute oats for the bread (1/2 cup per 1lb of beef). I also omit the beef bouillon cube and instead season with garlic powder, salt, pepper and cumin and add a splash of Worcestershire sauce. The recipe with the bouillon has great flavor, but bouillon has a lot of unnatural ingredients that I try to avoid. I also add extra onion and a squirt of mustard. Finally, before topping with the glaze and returning to the oven, I drain any excess grease out of the pan. As written, this recipe does not disappoint. This is just how I like my meatloaf.
I don't really LOVE meatloaf but this was really good. The changes I made were...I used regular mustard because I didn't have any other and in place of bread I used oats, I used another reviewers suggestion for replacing the bullion cube with 1 tsp worchestire sauce, garlic powder, and dash of tabasco (great suggestion). This turned out so flavorful and moist. This glaze makes all the difference you'll want to be sure to double the glaze, it's that good and do 1/2 c ketchup and 1/2 c bbq sauce instead of all ketchup. YUMMMMM!
I am 44 yrs old and have never made meatloaf before. I don't really like meatloaf but my husband does and has been begging for it for years. I decided to give this one a try. The directions were easy to follow and it was easy to prepare. When I took my first tentative bite I was shocked by what my mouth reported to my brain. I ate three slices. My husband, having experienced the goodness of his Mom's meatloaf, told me it was the best he's ever tasted. The look on his face as he ate it confirmed he wasn't saying it just to save my feelings. Excellent! Thank you!
By far the best meatloaf on this website. I have been making it for 10 years!!! My family asks for it!
Loved this recipe!!!!! Big hit with the family!!!! I used minced onion and meatloaf mix; beef, pork and veal freshly ground. I don't like using boullion; too much sodium, so I substituted it with crumbled turkey bacon. Delicious!!!!! Will make again!
I must admit i seasoned my ground meat the way I wanted it, bell pepper, onion, black pepper, etc..but the main thing I followed on this recipe was the glaze for the top...It was amazing...i didnt have any dry mustard so i substituted it with regular mustard not alot and it came out great...i thought it was going to be sweet but my husband loved it..because i made it out of meatballs instead of meatloaf i would cook it for 45mins instead of 1hr...will definitely use this again
This was excellent Meatloaf. Made it for my grandparents and Grandpa said it was the best meatloaf he's ever had! Super easy to make. I followed other posts on putting bread at bottom of loaf pan which is great but you still have to drain the fat. Also, take other's advice to make additional sauce to put on table - you won't regret it. I made with Garlic mashed potatoes and steamed green beans. Delish!
The sauce is very good but my husband and I found the meat a bit bland. I gave it 5 stars because the meat is tender and overall it is very tasty but I think we like something a bit more savory. I will keep the sauce and use it on a more savory version of the meat. Something with garlic, Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce. One reviewers tip to use bread in the bottom of the pan was GENIUS. I did meatloaf muffins and cut little circles out of sliced bread using the 1/3 cup measuring cup as a cookie cutter, just remove from the bottom before serving, it soaks up all the grease. Such a helpful tip
Excellent prepared as listed, I have made this several times and it is my family's favorite! Yesterday I didn't have bouillon or onions so I subsituted with Beefy onion dry soup instead of the beef bouillon and diced onions. Still YUMMY!
I made no changes in this recipe and it came out perfectly. My only complaint was not having enough left-over for more than one sandwich today!!! If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would - it's really THAT great!
First time cooking meatloaf, this was super easy to make and turned out wonderful. Added salt and pepper to taste.
Love this meatloaf! My husband asks for it all the time, too. The only change I made was that I use 2 slices of whole grain bread instead of 3. Also, I cook up bacon while the loaf is cooking, then add it to the top during the last 10 min. I also make extra sauce since the hubby loves it so much. Thanks for this great addition to my recipe book!
My picky family LOVES this recipe! I make it at least one a week. I substitue grpund beef for meatloaf mix.
Yum! The glaze is a great addition. I added a little cayenne pepper and black pepper to the meat before baking it to add a little spice.
I modified the recipe to make it a bit healthier and used wheat bread, splenda brown sugar and used 1 lb turkey and 1 lb 90% lean ground beef and it was awesome. My husband said it was the best meatloaf he has ever had.
Regular old meatloaf. Nothing stood out
Made it exactly as written. Everyone raved over it! I thought it would be bland because of a lack of spices but it was full of flavour. I drained the grease as suggested after an hour and the meatloaf came out moist and delicious. This will become a regular in my home.
I usually make a different meatloaf recipe but decided to give this one a shot, and I'm glad I did! My fiance said it was awesome, and he loved the topping. The only thing I did differently was to use bread crumbs in the place of slices of bread. Yummy!
Made this tonight for dinner and the entire family declared this a winner! The only substitution I made was using 3/4 cup bread crumbs for the 3 slices of bread. Thank you for posting this delicious recipe!
My husband and I loved this meatloaf. My pickier kids still wanted extra ketchup, but we all loved the glaze with it. I -almost- made it exactly as said, except I did use 1/2 cup bread crumbs for the shredded bread slices(I halved the recipe) and I actually made 4 small rectangle shaped loaves and just cooked them on a cookie sheet. This cut the cooking time down to probably around 45 minutes total, but could possibly be less because I didn't check earlier. I put the glaze on after about 20 minutes. Next time I will try cooking on foil or parchment paper because these really stuck to the metal. I also only had bouillon cubes that wouldn't crumble, so I actually microwaved it in the lemon juice to dissolve it. I had to add lemon juice by the time it fully dissolved to have the correct amount of lemon juice after it kept evaporating slightly in the microwave. I also accidentally doubled the dry mustard and I don't know how it would taste with the correct amount, but double was delicious! Just writing the review makes me want some more!
DING DING DING!!! We've found a winner! This one will replace my existing meatloaf recipe. Due to some limitations of last moment meal planning I did alter a bit of the recipe - but have no doubt that it is wonderful as written too! I did not have lemon juice so guess what was left out? On reading other reviews I liked the idea of 3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs instead of the bread - but only had plain, so I added a pinch of rosemary and thyme. For those who didn't care for using the bread itself because of the chunks - try loosely placing the slices of bread into a food processor for a few seconds - nice and fine - no more hunks of dough. But since I was lazy on wanting to do this (even though it's really so simple), I opted for the canned crumbs. Same reason I used dried minced onions. Why chop when you can pour . . . Thanks for a keeper Delia!
I made this exact recipes, and it wasn't that amazing. The sauce was pretty good. that was about it.
This was delicious! The sauce was sweet and tangy, the meat was tender and was simple to prepare. I will definitely keep this in my file to make again!
Meatloaf is something my husband always looks forward to, and he loved this one. I even had to make it without the onion (how did I let myself run out??)! I added a little ground pork to the mix but otherwise followed the recipe. Next time I would definitely start adding the sauce a little at a time to the top while it is baking because I prefer a more baked-in topping. Nice recipe. Thanks!
Fair, it looked like it would be awesome, but it wasnt. Sorry
The best meatloaf we've had to date. Followed the recipe and the meatloaf was perfectly moist and the glaze on top is amazing!
This meatloaf was wonderful. My boyfriend and I loved it! I did however add 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs along with the 3 piece of bread. I also added a can of tomato soup. I used half of the can of soup in the ketchup mixture for the glaze and added the rest into the meat mixture. It was delicious!
Reminded me of my mom's meatloaf. I used oatmeal in place of shredded bread and added about 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Will be making this again.
This dish is so easy, quick, and delicious! My boyfriend and I love it! I used seasoned dried bread crumbs instead of slices of bread, and I added a little bit of garlic to the meat mixture. Fantastic!
This meatloaf has become a staple in our home. I have made it at least 10 times. I would suggest for the bread, to use a cuisinart and get it to a nice almost rice like size. The big chunks of bread the first few times were not as good. if you don't have a chopper, maybe just shred as small as you can. Make sure when you mix everything together that you really squeeze it so there are not air pockets and really form a good loaf before putting in the pan. I have also found the cooking time does need to be extended some, we don't like pink meatloaf :) I added another 10 minutes. Enjoy!
I found that; - you should use a meat thermometer, for 1 hour is not nearly enough cooking time - you need to use 1 egg per lb. of hamburger for better binding purposes - the addition of some chopped onion and/or some dried onion soup mix greatly improves the taste
I have never made meatloaf EVER! This looked delicious so I thought I would try it out. I followed the recipe as written using bread crumbs and lining the bottom of the loaf pan with bread to absorb the grease. I had to cook it almost an hour and half because it was "loose" and not formed. Eventually I took it out because it was "done" but it never formed into a loaf and it was more like sloppy joes. I am giving this recipe 4 stars because the taste was delicious, but looks count, especially for kids, and mine wouldn't eat it because it didn't "look good."
great meatloaf my family ate it all in no time no leftovers I love the glaze on top very tasty!
MY WHOLE FAMILY LOVED THE GLAZE FOR THE MEATLOAF!!! I decided to used another recipe for the meatloaf because others said it way dry, but I am so glad that I tried the glaze. I double the recipe so that you can have it on the side. First time my dad has not had to pour ketchup all over the meatloaf.
I've been making a very similiar recipe for years, but this one is even better. I wouldn't change a thing.
This is GREAT! I made it with 100% whole wheat bread and only 1/4 C brown sugar in an attempt to make it lower in carbs. It is AWESOME!! Even my 3 and 5 year old girls liked it. Will definitely make this again. I've been snacking on it (my husband is late tonight) and hope there is some left for him! I'm sure this would make awesome sandwiches.
The glaze is wonderful but the meat itself it too meaty...needs more flavor. But I have to say this is the only meatloaf I ever scarfed down and it was pretty good. Until this dish, I've always hate meatloaf. I will try and spice up the meat mixture a little more next time though.
Delicious! Needed a touch of salt and pepper to flavour the beef, but otherwise wonderful. Lemon gives it a great tanginess. Ten minutes prep time was a severe underestimate for the non-professional chef mind you!
My fiancé's favorite main dish by far, he says this is my specialty. The only thing I change it I leave out the lemon juice because he doesn't like lemon juice at all. I would advise to not substitute the shredded bread for bread crumbs; when I tried that, I felt it made the meatloaf too dry.
This was pretty good. I reduced the amount of onion and the amount of sauce. It was still plenty sweet. Also, added some garlic. Thanks for the post.
Read all the reviews and based on them and the meatloaf recipe I have been using for years I created the best meatloaf me or my husband ever tasted. Cut the recipe in half since just the two of us. Used ground pork instead of beef. Modified version used 1 tablespoon brown sugar in glaze, 1 teaspoon lemon and I added 1 tablespoon A1 steak sauce. Omitted beef bouillon and lemon juice in meat portion. Grated frozen bread rather than shred. Added 1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 clove garlic pressed, about 2 or 3 skinless baby carrots chopped finely, about 1/4 both green and red bell peppers, diced and salt and pepper. Also sprayed baking dish with PAM before placing meat mixture in there. It turned out incredible! Hubby who most of the time says he doesn't care what we eat was in awe of this dish. By the way, had no problem with excess fat - there wasn't any - maybe ground pork made the difference.
Yummy! My family often asks me to make this. I used 1/2 ketchup, 1/2 BBQ sauce, 3/4 cup italian bread crumbs and dried minced onion. Also omitted the lemon juice. Delicious!
Very nice need somes herbs or just a tad bit more flavor added.
Wow. I'm not normally a fan of meatloaf but this was very good. I also loved that it was so easy to make. I made some slight alterations. After reading other reviews about how sweet the sauce was I decided to add about 2 pinches of garlic salt to it to offset the sweetness. I think that really helped. I also added one clove of minced garlic to the meat mix. Other than that I followed the recipe and it was wonderful. I will definitely make this again!
I substituted 1C panko for the bread, 1T onion soup mix for the bouillon, and nearly ground the onions in the food processor (mainly because my daughter kept pushing the button), which kept out big chunks that could make it fall apart. I only put in 1T lemon juice because I was afraid it would be too citrussy, but you couldn't taste the lemon (or the soup mix) at all. I also used a beef/pork/veal mix for the meat. It was really delicious! Even my extremely picky 13-year-old gobbled it up. The glaze was wonderful and there was a lot of it. I think next time I would make the whole batch, and heat up the excess and serve it to spoon over the meatloaf. I have tried dozens of meatloaf recipes over the years, and this is one of the best. Thank you!
Our son has Celiacs disease and cannot have gluten. I omitted the bread and replaced it with a cup of crushed corn flakes. This recipe was a big hit with the family. It is one of the best meatloaf recipes that I've ever tried.
We love this recipe!
This has turned out to be our favorite. I freeze half the meatloaf mixture and write on the foil the time, temp and recipe for the sauce for the top of the meatloaf. That way you have a meal in minutes. Just put the frozen one in the oven and it is ready in the same time. It is just enough for the two of us and an extra for a sandwich the next day. I use all the sauce for the one meatloaf.
I thought my meatloaf was boring so i tried this one. The only thing i did differently was that i substituted crackers for the bread and i added a half can of tomato soup to the glaze keep it from being so sweet. My kids loved it!
unbelievable. My husband doesn't even normally like meatloaf and even he was impressed. The flavor was spot on, not too sweet, not to tomatoey. The only thing I did different was in the middle of preparing this I realized I didn't have any beef boullion cubes. Desperate, I found a pack of beef flavored Ramen soup mix and stole the beef flavor out of that. Worked okay in a pinch! I'm going to be using this meatloaf recipe from now on!,
This has become our new favorite meatloaf. I have actually been using this recipe for some time now and just now got around to rating it. We love it, it is moist and flavorful and the lemon adds an interesting *something* that guests will say, "what is that flavor"? Yummy!
Wow, I loved this meatloaf. I used 1/2 panko and 1/2 oats instead of bread and I used Dijon mustard instead of dried mustard in the sauce. I was afraid it wasn't enough sauce so, I added 1/4 cup more of ketchup and 1/4 cup of maple brown sugar bbq sauce. It came out sooo moist and delicious! My husband absolutely loved it.
This meatloaf was excellent. I've tried many many recipes and never found one that was enjoyed as much by my family. I replaced the lemon juice in the glaze with balsamic vinegar and with Worcestershire in the meat. (Adding lemon juice to ground meat just sounded weird...) Worcestershire was tangy like the lemon and added that beefy flavor, so I skipped the beef bullion. I also used a combination of ground beef, lamb, and veal. This is a keeper!
