    Seriously....do you cringe when you discover your spouse or parent has prepared meatloaf for dinner??
    Or does someone in your family have a special way to make it, to make it "oh so good"??
    You know, meatloaf just isn't one of those special always asked for dinner meats.

    meatloaf is great.

    Is easy as hell to make tastey.


    i sometimes grill up meatloaf burgers and freeze then for quick lunches or dinners

    I agree it's easy to make tasty....but when my children were young...they always hated when I made it......mine wasn't jazzed up enough I guess ~LoL~
    Now...I don't even make it anymore, but I do like it....I like to try other peoples'.

    It isn't? Please don't tell my son: he asks me to make it when he's coming home for a visit.


    My sister's meatloaf isn't bad, either!

    Indeed. The only reason to make meat loaf is for sammiches.

    Everyone who has had my meatloaf thinks it's yummy. What makes a good meatloaf is the right consistency...not too dense, but doesn't fall apart either. I use Italian bread crumbs, egg, milk, finely chopped onion, ketchup, barbeque sauce and several spices. My favorite side with it is buttered egg noodles sprinkled with parmesan cheese.

    Make it with two-thirds 90/10 ground beef (leaner the better) and one-third sausage.
    You will get plenty of fat goodness from the sausage so don't worry about the lean beef.
    I make it with hot sausage.

    That sounds yummy. I use tomato sauce, egg, LOTS of diced onion, minced garlic, mushrooms, soy sauce, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, bread crumbs, pepper and ground beef. It's a recipe my dad made up, but I amp up the seasonings.
