    To garnish, I like to put 1/3 cup yellow mustard, 1/3 cup ketchup, 1/3 cup Worcestershire, 2 heaping tbsp brown sugar, salt & pepper mixed on mine.

    In addition to lean ground beef, I add a little milk, an egg, and crumbled (finely) ritz crackers. It never lasts, makes great sandwiches the day after.

    So you ate half of it before you get control of yourself long enough to take a pic?

    Nope! I only had a fork full or so. I had a big lunch at 3:00, so I just had Teresa have some of it for supper. I also had to give the cats their allotment. I'll make a meatloaf sammich tomorrow.

    We have 'meatloaf melts' ( basically grilled cheese sandwiches with leftover meatloaf inside!) two days after meatloaf dinner.

    I LOVE MEATLOAF!

    ( besides her own take, my wife has also made Emeril's and Martha Stewart's recipes- all awesome!)

    I use oatmeal instead of breadcrumbs, much easier and healthier (won’t have all the sodium that’s in bread). I use the old-fashioned kind, not the instant or quick.

    I'm from Australia so assume I'm ignorant of meatloaf. What is it, what ingredients and taste? Please.

    Meatloaf comes in 2 varieties: The best ever, or the worst ever. Choose wisely.

    Hmmm... might try that. I like to grind up carrot, onion and garlic in the food processor and add it - sometimes Parmesan, too.

    In the ‘80s, leadership declared ketchup a vegetable. With the oats and meat, you covered the whole food pyramid!

    I love it, but never make it. My son doesn't like it and my wife is vegetarian.

    That's a great job and looks amazing! In the kitchen I can't even make ice cubes!

    Meatloaf ain't just for the greasy spoon joint. I love the stuff.

    Roll up some bratwurst, kielbasa, or spicy hot Italian sausage in it. When you slice it to serve, it looks like bones in a roast. Makes it super tasty too.

    Other interesting and yummy surprises you can roll up in a meatloaf is small new potatoes, large potato wedges, and dill pickle spears. And bacon.

    Just replace the ground beef with an equal amount of oatmeal.

    'Presto!'....vegetarian meatloaf!

    After my wife burned her first attempt at meatloaf, we tried to feed it to the cat, and the cat tried to cover it up.

    I love me some meatloaf, and I love it cold in a sammich! I've heard it said that momma cows tell their little 'uns, one day you're gonna grow up and become something wonderful, at the right time, you will become meatloaf, and you'll be known round the world!
