    It was ok for my first time trying to make a meatloaf but something tells me it can be better. A little mushy but im a novice so it could of been my mistake

    Amazing! I always wing it with my meatloaf and it is like 50/50 if I get a decent one. THIS recipe is bang on amazing. It’s what meatloaf is supposed to taste like! Like the way mom made when I was a kid!!

    My is in the over now! I used bread crumbs instead of oatmeal and I added some seasoning salt, Italian seasoning, ranch rub, and garlic salt for flavor! Can’t wait to try it! Hope the hubby enjoys it!

    BEAUTIFUL, did adjust topping as when I removed excess oil from baking dish, lost alot of the topping. Flavour was there, but added more after cooking for presentation. Also tweeked with more garlic, oregeno and w'shire that stuff.

    Very good! I used original oatmeal because that is what I had and it turned out great. I did add more Italian based seasonings, but that's what I do. Will definitely make again. Can't wait for the meatloaf sandwiches over the next few days of social distancing.

    Overall it was pretty good. Followed other reviews and didn’t do the full amount of brown sugar. I always use recipes as a guideline and add extra stuff to make it my own, I added some garlic and it helped! Next time I’ll add the milk a little at a time as I mix because it was too wet, had to add more meat to the mix! There was something missing in terms of flavor, so next time I’ll add some Worcestershire sauce

    I made it with ground turkey and hard boiled egg in the middle of the meat loaf it looks pretty when you cut it

    Reduce sauce to 1 TBS. brown sugar. Way too sweet the first time and better the second time with less. Good for hungry days when my boyfriend just wants to eat a lot.
