I didn't change the ingredients but after browning the loaves I put them in a crock pot poured the soup mixture over everythnig and cooked on low for 3 hours. I served everything over cooked rice. This is a great comfort food dish even during the hot afternoons when you don't want to sweat over an oven or stove. Read More

Meat was just delicious juicy & tender but I didn't care for the sauce too much of an intense tomato soup flavour. Will make it again but alter the sauce with maybe a little extra water and some Worcestershire sauce Read More

I would have given it 5 stars, but I changed a couple things. I added a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce as suggested by others and used a small jar of Marinara Sauce instead of the Tomato Soup. It made the meatloaf richer and spicier. I also browned the meat on top of the stove, then put it in the oven for 45 minutes uncovered. It was delicious with mashed potatoes and green beans. Will make it again soon. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

My meatloaf loving husband gives this 5 stars. I thought it was toooo salty but he's the expert so I'll go with his evaluation. I used Italian bread crumbs and omitted the cheese. It was so easy and no need to heat up the kitchen by baking it in the oven. Left overs great in sandwiches too! Read More

We loved this easy meatloaf! I used Italian seasoned bread crumbs and a can of pizza sauce instead of the soup. There's only two of us so we have the second loaf for leftovers. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

My husband I weren't fans of this but my three year old thought it was delicious. I used the pizza sauce idea and Italian breadcrumbs as tomato soup totally grosses me out and I thought the meat just had no flavor. It's always fun to try a new recipe but again I was told to stick to my original meatloaf recipe. Oh well! Read More
