“This soft-textured meatloaf is speckled with vegetables. My kids and I love the flavor of this dish. There's always enough for sandwiches the next day and crumbled into spaghetti sauce the day after that.” - by Kris W.

"Great tasting and the key is to make sure to cook the onions,peppers, celery & carrots ahead til soft (some recipes have you add it all in ahead uncooked and its not as good)I also ran out of ketchup ..." See moreand glazed the loaf with a steak sauce and brown suger mixture, yummy, I sometimes like to add in several whole mushrooms right down the middle if I'm serving it for company and it looks real cool when you slice it and the there is a perfect mushroom right in the middle of the slice. Try it!"
"All I can say is "Yum!" I usually make my meatloaf using meatloaf mix (beef, pork, and veal) but it is soooooo greasy and I tend to be very health conscious, so this was a good alternative (the combi..." See morenation of turkey and pork is a good one), and it turned out tasting very much like my usual meatloaf. I made some changes (I hope you don't mind Kris) -I used a handful of parsley in place of spinach, I used an envelope of onion soup mix, I used just one whole egg and then one egg white to lighten it a bit, and I used oats as my filler rather than bread crumbs, par usual. I had to leave some things the way I normally do or my kids would not have eaten it! However many changes I made, the basic recipe is still a winner, and no matter how you dress it up to your own taste, this is one DELISH meatloaf, hubby and kid-approved! I also used the leftovers (as recommended by Kris) to make spaghetti sauce- I started with my usual homemade sauce, then crumbled the meat into it and let it simmer for an hour. It was great!"
"This is sooo good. I have already made this two times this week. I used all turkey, ground oats instead of bread crumbs and added mushrooms. The wheat germ is a really great way to get extra nutrie..." See morents in without sacrificing taste. I added some Mexican Seasoning to mine the first time, and Thai Style Green Curry Spice Blend the second time. Both were phenomenal. Update - I ran out of ketchup and substituted Sweet Baby Rays Hickory Brown Sugar barbeque sauce. I also used Montreal Seasoning. Tasted even better than the ketchup."
