5 stars with a few changes. I read a lot a reviews and then combined their ideas with one of the brown sugar meatloaf recipes. It is a total hit. My family loves it - truly best ever. and not the same old same old. I used 1 lb of beef (less), 2 eggs (more for better consistency), 1c salsa, 3/4 c oatmeal, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, and chopped onion (dehydrated or fresh), plus a SMALL handful of brown sugar. sprinkle the bottom of the pan with brown sugar, add meatloaf and sprinkle top with brown sugar. bake at 350 for 1 hr. sounds odd but it's terrific. I hope your family agrees.



This recipe was pretty basic but a good starting point. I added garlic to spice it up. Also if you only use the pan as a mold and actually bake it on a baking sheet it allows the meatloaf to cook in 3/4 the time. When you bake it this way you can put a sauce on the sides too for added flavor. My favorite sauce is to mix 3 parts kechup to 1 part steak sauce such as A1.

I made this meatloaf for my family and they absolutley loved it! My husband said it was the best ever. For a complete meal, I recommend serving it with the Ranch Potatoes.
