My husband and I loved this recipe we have tried several different ones and I think that this is going to be "the one" we will go back to.. The only changes I made were I added in some garlic powder and just a splash of worchestire sauce.. For a glaze I added a mix of ketchup and Heinz 57 and then sprinkled some shredded mozarella cheese on top when it came out of the oven..DELICIOUS!!! Kiki (Brampton,Ont,Canada)


I thought this recipe seemed to easy to be good, but I was wrong. I now own the Best Meatloaf Recipe award in our house. I've made this several times, but make sure you use meat that is 80/20 or you will have some floating grease that you will need to drain off. Very tasty, very easy. I took the foil off for the last 8 minutes or so. EASY and EXCELLENT (my two favorite words when it comes to cooking).


I used 90/10 ground beef, 2lbs, since I needed 2 loaves. I used the whole 1oz pkg of ranch mix. I used the entire 6oz can of fried onions. I also used about a cup and a half of dried cornbread stuffing mix. I topped both with a drizzle of maple syrup and ketchup and then a half can of fried onions (3 oz) on top. I wrapped them with foil before baking for 1 hour and 15 mintes. I sprinkled the meat mix with coarse ground black pepper and a little bit of Jalapeno Salt. I also added 1/4 cup of ketchup and 1/4 cup of heinz 57 sauce. I added about half of a yellow sweet onion and about 1/2 of a green bell pepper (grinded in a food processor into small pieces) for moisture, I sprinkled about half a can of more french fried onions on each and wrapped each pan in foil before cooking for about 1hour and 15 minutes. I let them rest for about 30 minutes before serving and they were to die for. What a great recipe! I will never make "regular" meatloaf again!!! It's fun to experiment with regular recipes and I will tell you that coming from someone who does not always like meatloaf, this was to die for and it is now my NEW meatloaf recipe.
