I don't even like meatloaf, but I kind of tweaked the recipe, and it's AWESOME!!! I didn't have panko crumbs, so I just used regular bread crumbs (a little more than 1 cup). I also am not a fan of ketchup, so I used 1 part ketchup, 1 part BBQ sauce, 1 part steak sauce, with a little bit of Worchestershire. THe meatloaf turned out moist and absolutely delicious! You have made me into a meatloaf believer!!

I was looking for a recipe that used Panko (Japanese Bread Crumbs) and this was it. What a great meatloaf. Panko has better flavor and texture than regular bread crumbs. I did "doctor up" the Panko with garlic salt, Adobe (secret ingredient) and pepper. Then added a little italian seasoning for color. I did use a little more Panko than the 1 cup. It needed a little firmer texture. The author is right, eyeball it! Lastly I added some finely chopped onion. This won some rave reviews on a cold Oct day in NE while watching the NE Patriots. Not typical "Football" food, but everyone had seconds :) I also made some Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic. Yum!

I'm not a big fan of meatloaf, but it is my son's favorite dish. I am always looking for one that I can make that I will like better. Thanks Jackie, I found it. This one is going in the file box and the search is over. Ease of preperation is a big plus too.
