Wow!! This is the best meatloaf I have ever had! I did have to make a few substitutions because of things I had in my pantry...I used balsamic vinegar (didn't have any regular), V8 juice for the tomato juice and tomato paste instead of ketchup. My husband raved about the wonderful taste and texture....we will definitely be enjoying this recipe again and again and again......

I have made this 5 times in 2 months and it never gets old. This is probably the best meatloaf recipe I have ever had. The only tweak I added was 1 1/2 cups of chopped red/orange/yellow/green peppers. I suggest you try it original before experimenting, you will NOT be disapointed.

I had been searching high and low for a meatloaf that would blow my mind and this was it! It was amazing! It just melts in your mouth! Best meat loaf I ever had. My girlfriend and I made it for my grandmother and it was the best she'd ever had!
