"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!!"

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 ju...

This was a great, simple, satisfying meatloaf. The seasoning was perfect. No additional salt, pepper, or other seasoning is needed, since the sausage and the dip mix are loaded with all three....

Its on the soft side (I should have used more crackers), but really good with HOT pork sausage and ground beef! The sandwiches the next day were...Oh my god! Soooo good!

OUT OF THIS WORLD! Makes good meatballs, too--lose lots of the fat by baking them on a wire rack so the grease drips into the pan below. Thank you so much for this recipe.

The family really enjoyed this recipe. I made slight modifications to suit our tastes: 1 additional egg, 4 slices of toasted whole wheat bread instead of saltines, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp sa...

My meatloaf was for only 2 people, so I made half a recipe. Very tasty! But your recipe has too many calories. I changed it by adding 1/2 red pepper chopped; 3/4 small white onion chopped; and u...

My family loved this recipe -- it fed two adults, one teen, and 4 children with leftovers!! They hate any kind of "chunks", i.e., onions, green peppers, so onion soup (I just put onion powder an...
