This recipe was wonderful! I used ketchup instead of BBQ sauce and it tasted just like my hamburger meatloaf. Thanks! We have recently become vegetarian and were just craving something like this! Read More

I really liked this -- and I'm a meat eater! I didn't use Parmesean cheese (no preference for it), added two small diced mushrooms (because I had extras), and added an extra egg-white to make sure it wasn't too dry. My only recommendation is to use a food processor to chop the green bell peppers and onion into fine pieces, otherwise it might be too chunky for some. Read More

WOW! We have ditched red meat for about 3 years now and my daughter missed meatloaf the most. This was a fantastic substitute! I only used about 1/2 the amount of BBQ sauce and used ketchup in place of the other half. Read More

Good, but too much BBQ sauce. Next time, I'll either use half the amount (or even less), or I'll try using gravy instead. Otherwise, good recipe! Read More

Ok I added additional bread crumbs and an additional eggwhite I used ketchup.(and it's a good thing I did) however the outside when done was nicely browned but the inside..not so much it was very TASTY but it completly falls apart so I then sliced it into individual slices and put it back in the oven to crisp them up I will make this recipe again. but this time I will NOT use a loaf pan I will make individual slices from the get go add some oil to the roasting pan then cook...also I needed to leave it in the oven much longer then the cook time says Oh and if u do use a loaf pan make sure you grease that sucker up good I only gave 4 stars because of presentation not taste. it does taste quite good but I was trying to go for a nice solid loaf this would also be great for meatballs!

This turned out like mush. It never set even after baking 10 extra minutes. It also was not enough to fill the pan. Otherwise it tastes good. Read More

This was tasty but it did not set very well for me. I would advise to switch the bbq sauce for ketchup as the bbq sauce was too overpowering in my opinion. Also it may be useful to put the veg crumbles into a food processor to make finer crumbles. Read More
