HELPFUL TIPS AFTER READING ALL THE REVIEWS: The idea of putting 2 pieces of bread on the bottom of the pan before cooking to soak up the grease is GOD SEND! Works like a charm, and you can remove it when you slice everyone their piece. BUT I also take it out at the 1hr mark and drain the excess liquid. I double the sauce, but only to drizzle on top of everyone's slice since my kids&husband like to slather their meatloaf w/ketchup. When I do double the topping, I add 1T lemon juice OR 1T balsamic vinegar for yummiest topping! Substitute bread for 3/4C oats & use green onions instead of onions if you've got picky eaters. Sometimes I dice green peppers too for more flavor. If you haven't tried "Honey Roasted Red Potatoes" I'd recommend trying them along side, and you're sure to be everyone's best friend. All my picky eaters tell me I'm the greatest cook ever due to everyone's great reviews! This meatloaf was liked by everyone over the two other top rated ones on this site! I also make them in muffin cups and just baked at 375 for 30 min.

Yum!! This recipe makes an excellent meatloaf. My son and husband love meatloaf, so I've been trying various recipes to see which one they like the best. After tasting this for dinner last night, they both said don't try any more, this one is the best! As for substitutions, I added 3/4 c. of oats in place of the bread, and used balsamic vinegar in place of the lemon juice. Next time I will try the lemon juice, but the vinegar worked fine and I happened to be out of lemons. Oh, one great tip that I got from another reviewer is to line the bottom of your 9x5 pan with bread slices when making a meatloaf. The bread soaks up all the fat and then you just throw the bread away. Works great!

My family was craving meat so I desided to make them meatloaf. I didnt have any beef bouillon so I added a pinch of garlic powder to add flavor. I also didnt have bread so I substituted that for a cup of oats. Dry mustard was traded in for yellow mustard. I've hated meatloaf for as long as I can remember but what I made last night was excellent. The glaze made all the difference, it was amazing. After reading the reviews I made a double batch of glaze and it covered the loaf beautifully. Definatly a keeper!
