My husband loved this! Best meatloaf that I have made by far. I substituted 1/2 c of oatmeal instead of bread crumbs and it turned out great.



This is the best meatloaf ever! My children love it. It stays together so well that I put it in a large roasting pan and cook quartered potatos around it.The potatos cook in the sauces that run from the meatloaf. DELICIOUS!! Thanks Mary!



This is the best meatloaf recipe I have tried to date. My husband even loves it and he used to hate meatloaf. Like another reviewer I used ground pork and veal in addition to the ground beef. I increased the onions to two and sauteed them in olive oil first. I also used potato bread instead of white, added a tbsp of dried parsley, and used only 2 tbsp of brown sugar for the topping and found it was plenty sweet. This is my only meatloaf recipe from now on. Thanks Mary!
