Just made this! I made a few changes: I sauteed the onion and and added some minced garlic too. I put a couple dashes of soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce and put the loaves in a muffin tin:) I'm really really happy with the results! The only problem I had was that I put a little too much of the sauce on top of the first tin load so there wasn't enough for all of them. But they taste amaaaaaazing!! Read More

So good...I always double it, so I put them on a baking sheet to cook. I would make them and freeze single ones in little containers for my widowed, elderly Mom to just thaw and warm. She loved them. She would also slice one and make a sandwich. Read More

These are delicious meatloaves. I must admit, however, that I've made them numerous times using another recipe on this site that uses the same ingredients with a little less sugar in the topping. These are really delicious and easy to put together. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was a great meatloaf! I wanted to make sure the sauce stuck so I added half at the beginning then half about 10 minutes before it was done. It was so good and sweet! Made some changes for my Paleo diet though no oats used almond meal. Then for the brown sugar used 1/4 cup coconut sugar and 1/4 cup honey...worked nicely! Ate it all up:) Read More

Even my ground meat adverse kids love this meatloaf/meatball hybrid. Our variation is to omit the onion; soak the oatmeal in milk for about an hour before adding to the meat; omit the mustard powder from the sauce and replace with about 1 Tbsp of steak sauce or oyster sauce. Sometimes I make this with 1-1/4 pounds of meat and it still works. I serve with brown rice and steamed broccoli. One of the few meals that my entire family will eat without complaint. These just melt in your mouth! Read More
