I don't even like meatloaf, but I kind of tweaked the recipe, and it's AWESOME!!! I didn't have panko crumbs, so I just used regular bread crumbs (a little more than 1 cup). I also am not a fan of ketchup, so I used 1 part ketchup, 1 part BBQ sauce, 1 part steak sauce, with a little bit of Worchestershire. THe meatloaf turned out moist and absolutely delicious! You have made me into a meatloaf believer!! Read More

This meatloaf is a mouthful of ketchup. Followed directions to the tee and only tasted ketchup. A hundred times YUCK. Threw it out. Read More

I was looking for a recipe that used Panko (Japanese Bread Crumbs) and this was it. What a great meatloaf. Panko has better flavor and texture than regular bread crumbs. I did "doctor up" the Panko with garlic salt, Adobe (secret ingredient) and pepper. Then added a little italian seasoning for color. I did use a little more Panko than the 1 cup. It needed a little firmer texture. The author is right, eyeball it! Lastly I added some finely chopped onion. This won some rave reviews on a cold Oct day in NE while watching the NE Patriots. Not typical "Football" food, but everyone had seconds :) I also made some Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic. Yum! Read More

I'm not a big fan of meatloaf, but it is my son's favorite dish. I am always looking for one that I can make that I will like better. Thanks Jackie, I found it. This one is going in the file box and the search is over. Ease of preperation is a big plus too. Read More

Very good and very easy. I had leftover Panko crumbs to use and this was a perfect choice. I did use some chopped onion and minced garlic instead of the powders. Also I added some chopped red bell pepper celery and shredded carrots. I added worcestershire as someone else suggested. I guess I am saying this is a good base recipe and add what you like.

This is a really good recipe although I will admit I used barbeque sauce instead of ketchup. I like that it easily took small changes like adding 1/4 cup of finely grated carrot. Easy to assemble. Very tasty! Thank you! Read More

I give this recipe a thumbs up. I am not a big fan of meatloaf but I tried this recipe and it was really good. I took the advice of one of the other reviewers and did one part bbq sauce one part ketchup and one part worcestire sauce instead of ketchup alone. It was very good. Read More

This was a nice meal. The texture was great it held together and didn't fall apart and wasn't mealy or bready. I was a little apprehensive using all that garlic and onion powder 1 T each seemed like a lot so I used about 2 tsp of each instead. Next time I will use the full amount. I did add another 1/4 ketchup. Overall a nice meatloaf basic and simple and nothing for picky eaters to complain about either! Great for kids maybe a bit bland for grown up tastes. Thanks. Read More
