“My family kept turning up their noses at my meatloaf. I tried several recipes in hopes of finding one that they would all like. They told it was just too darn plain for their taste. I tried adding oatmeal or rice instead of dry bread crumbs, adding different kinds of veggies, I used canned tomatoes, or ketchup, or tomato paste, or different styles of tomato sauce, even different spices until I came up with this one. When I saw all plates clean and being asked for more, I knew I had found the one they liked and the keeper for our family.” - by rlt11_NMC

"This meatloaf was delicious although I did have a couple small changes to it. I used garlic and onion tomato sauce since my grocery store did not have the Mexican tomato sauce. I added about 8 shake..." See mores of Tabasco sauce for the missing heat. I also used 1 teaspoon garlic powder, half teaspoon oregano, half teaspoon basil and half teaspoon parsley since I don't have the Mrs.Dash. I also only used 11/2lbs ground turkey because that was the amount I had frozen. This was the first meatloaf that I loved and didn't smother in ketchup!"
"This was a nice twist on meatloaf, even my picky husband enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing!..." See more"
"YUMMY!!!!!! i tried it with the quinoa customization and i can't help but wonder if it should have been cooked before it was added to the mixture because it got all crumbly. i reduced the beef to us..." See moree 12 oz of chorizo and it added some heat to the meatloaf. can't wait to make this again. YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM!!!!!!"
