I wanted to find a great Meatloaf recipe to show this is a yummy dinner and too often dismissed. I searched high and low for an awesome recipe with terrific reviews and I found the perfect one from I’m glad it turned out so well because that would have been a huge fail on about 1,ooo reviewers! It’s simple yet very, very tasty. The sauce on top is the perfect amount of tangy and sweet. There is nothing blah about this meatloaf…think twice before you brush off this recipe, it’s a must try! I’ve made meatloaf once before and it was pretty good…but this one is far superior πŸ™‚ I know you will love it, hope you enjoy πŸ™‚

  1. So interesting! There’s milk in it!! I’ll have to try this sometime πŸ™‚ Usually I make a turkey meatloaf with lots of veggies inside, but you’ve made me quite curious about this one!

  2. I always used milk in my meatloaf and I actually was surprised to meet people that had never heard of it. Looks great!

  3. Thanks for this! I just made a meatloaf about two weeks ago, and it was the same old boring thing. It fell apart as I was trying to slice it… Your meatloaf looks fabulous! I’ll be trying it very soon… I know my husband will love it! πŸ™‚
