My children didn't even know what meatloaf was, as I had never made it before. My childhood memories of meatloaf did not provide any encouragement for me to make that dish for my family. When I ran across this recipe, it was so highly rated that I decided to try it out. My family loved it! I have made it many times since. I even made it for a friend's family when she was convalescing after surgery. Her son said, "This is better than your meatloaf, Mom!" :) She requested the recipe and now makes it for her family. I used to use the slices of bread but I really like using dry bread crumbs better (about 1 cup). I don't end up with any visible chunks of bread in the loaf.

Very moist and tasty! A few substitutes: I used 1 small can tomato sauce in the meat mixture in place of lemon juice and ketchup mixture; eliminated beef bouillon granules and added salt, pepper and garlic powder; and used 2 slices of bread instead of 3. I've also made this dish just using ketchup as glaze and it comes out great! I baked potatoes at the same time; total cooking time was closer to 1 1/2 hrs. My husband and grown children love this meat loaf! Grandkids don't like the onions; onions should be chopped fine or they don't cook through. This dish also cooks best with very lean beef, under 7% to 15% fat. Serve with corn and a simple tossed salad for a great, easy meal.


As much as I love my mom, her meatloaf recipe wasn't the best. I've been looking for one to replace it,and this is the one! The best part about this recipe is the glaze/sauce. I doctored the actual meat loaf up a little bit with some minced garlic and finely chopped green peppers and onion, some seasoning (garlic salt, onion powder, etc), some steak sauce, etc... I also used bread crumbs instead of the cubed bread. It came out perfect anyway-very moist and flavorful. Double the amount of sauce so you will have some extra. I served the leftover on a couple of little toasted French rolls with melted Provolone and extra sauce as a meatloaf sandwich. Great recipe-thanks!
