Absolutely fabulous. No sundried tomatoes? Use Rotel just be sure to thoroughly drain the can using the can lid to squeeze any excess liquid within the tomatoes. I love this recipe and so did my husband. We actually don't use ground beef here but we used 93% 7% ground turkey and it was phenomenal. We also didn't have the provolone cheese which was okay because it was splendid. A must try recipe!!!!! Read More

It was pretty tasty although a bit too oniony for our taste. I'll probably make it again. Read More

As written this is a decent recipe but with a few simple changes it's great! I added 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp black pepper 1/2 tsp rosemary 1 tsp oregano and 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes. I like my meatloaf with a bit of a glaze on top so I brushed with ketchup mixed with Italian seasoning. Next time I will omit ketchup from meat mixture entirely and only use it in the topping. My only real complaint is with the texture- very crumbly. Next time I will omit the bread crumbs and replace with bread and milk. Sounds like a lot of changes but really the original recipe is pretty much intact. The provolone fresh basil and sun-dried tomatoes are right on the mark and I'll definitely be repeating this one!

Great flavor! Used 2 whole eggs instead of using only egg white. I will reduce to one egg next time as it was a bit crumbly. Excellent recipe that family loved. Read More

Best meatloaf ever! My husband said he never wants to eat a different meatloaf recipe again. Followed almost exactly....except no bread crumbs so crunched up veggie straw chips (improvising at its finest lol). Also our grocery store didn t have shredded or block provolone....I cut up slices actually think it was better cause there was pockets of cheese. I baked in 4 mini loaf pans for 30 mins to speed it up. So flavorful and moist! Can t wait to make it again. Read More

Not a bad recipe. I added sausage to the filling. Even with that I felt it was somewhat bland. The family liked it though and I'll make it again and just see what I can add to bump up the flavor a little Read More
