I don't really like meatloaf at all, but when mom made this one, she really had a hit with the entire family! Not your typical meatloaf -- very tasty! Use fresh sausage, not frozen! Use more crackers if the loaf seems too moist before cooking. Excellent for sandwiches the next day!!

No offense Mom (whoever you are) but this meatloaf is simply bla! No salt? no pepper? no celery? no garlic? and of all things, onion dip? What is wrong with real onions? Plain crackers can be ok for filler but seasoned bread crumbs are much better. Any good cook be them a chef or just a home cook, always uses the three basic ingredients in most all meat dishes, salt, pepper, and garlic. Without them simply the taste of unseasoned ground meat just doesn't cut it. Sorry but there's really room to improve this basic flavorless recipe.

I made this meatloaf for kids who swore they would never like any kind of meatloaf and they devoured it. It is very easy to make and isn't bogged down with too many ingredients.

This pleased the whole family. Choose a very flavorful sausage as well as a favorite dip and this gets very tasty. The saltines provide plenty of salt. I used 2 sleeves of crackers and it was just right - the meatloaf was firm but not dry.
