A slightly different recipe using a combination of ingredients, this meatloaf tastes absolutely divine! Instead of the usual ketchup, tomato paste, and brown sugar, this meatloaf is more of an 'upscale' version of the traditional. Best served with mashed potatoes and asparagus. This is my own personal creation! I substitute ground deer meat occasionally instead of beef, only because I have a freezer full, and it's organic!

This is excellent just a few suggestions. Add extra egg so the mixture will hold better after cooking and sprinkle the top with another 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese. thanks for a different meatloaf recipe. Read More

We really enjoyed having this for dinner. Even my 2 year old ate this which usually if he sees any green vegetables he won't even try it. It had a lot of flavor and moist. I had a clove of roasted garlic that I had roasted and used that. It is nice to have a meat loaf recipe with a different flair. Plus I had all the ingredients already! Read More

There is a similar recipe to this on AR but it calls for the meatloaf to be baked in muffin tins and doesn't have the mushrooms. I've made that one several times and am a fan. I did have some mushrooms to use up so thought I would try this. I halved the recipe as I only had 3/4 pound of ground beef to use. This meatloaf is much more tender than the other. I don't think there is enough blue cheese in it to really be able to taste it. I glaze all my meatloaves with a combination of ketchup brown sugar and Worcestershire. Overall we enjoyed the meatloaf and will make it again. Thanks! Read More

Made this tonight. Some changes of course. I halved this recipe and used 12 oz. of ground turkey. However I kept the vegetable quantities the same as original so needed just a bit of extra bread crumb ( I used panko.) Loved the texture and flavor. Will definitely make again. Also served with homemade ratatouille made with all fresh farmers market veg. Yum. Read More

An interesting twist on Meatloaf. The blue cheese taste was not "blue cheesy". It gave it a creamy moist recipe. It took a long time for this to cook. Much longer than the recommended time. And the recipe doesn't state whether it should be covered or uncovered. Now that I know I can plan my meal better. But the taste was really good and really worth it! Will make it again. Read More

Very easy to make and it tasted excellent. I would try to add another egg as suggested by DaCook to make it hold better. Will make again this recipe is definitely a keeper. Read More
