My Meatloaf

"This is the meatloaf I taught myself how to make when I tried to duplicate my Daddy's meatloaf! It's a perennial family favorite! It's wonderful sliced cold the next day and used in a warm, toasted sandwich with a little butter."

I finally found a meat loaf recipe that tastes good! The only change i made was using bread crumbs instead of bread slices. The meat loaf was so moist, didn't fall apart when I took it out of the pan, and the best part was that my husband raved about it! This is a meat loaf recipe i'll make again and again,. Thanks!


OUTSTANDING! This meatloaf was so moist and delicious. The only changes I made were to add an egg and a little milk in place of the water. I baked it at 350 for one hour and it didn't lose any of it's juices. It was oh so good! Thank you Marian Turgeon for such an OUTSTANDING recipe!


Great recipe! This recipe is the fabulous, traditional way to cook meatloaf. Very moist and flavourful! But... Instead of the onion soup mix, I used Beef and Mushroom soup mix. WONDERFUL on flavour! The soup mix is made for beef and hits all the right spots and kicks the meatloaf up another notch! Instead of ketchup, I use tomato paste..both before cooking and after. I 'paint' the tomato paste ontop of the loaf about half way through cooking. It's sweeter and gives a whole nother flavour!
