  1. This meatloaf recipe is great! The Italian style versus the American Meatloaf! I do tweak it one tiny bit. Instead of the diced tomato in the meatloaf I use a can of tomato soup with about 1/2 cup of water and spoon over the meatloaf when it's about 3/4 done. It makes the most delicous - Read more ...
  2. This meatloaf was delicious- the best I've ever had! Along with others who left comments, I made some adjustments. I used italian-style bread crumbs, canned tomatoes with garlic & onion, chunky pasta sauce instead of ketchup and added 1tsp dried parsley and a pinch of crushed black pepper. In addition, for the last 10 minutes - Read more ...
  3. Omgosh this is delicious. I used whole peeled tomatoes instead of diced because that's what I had on hand. I used 93 % ground beef and it was still so moist. I also added a bit of parmesan cheese. I had to cook it a bit longer too. It was the best meatloaf I've had - Read more ...

  5. This is a phenomenal recipe--one of my favorites so far from this site. I did tweak it just a little. I used a little over 2 lbs of lean ground beef cause that's what I had. I used 1 cup of italian seasoned bread crumbs and 1/2 cup of sphagetti sauce instead of the ketchup. - Read more ...
  6. I use the Brown Sugar Meatloaf recipe from this site as my "regular" meatloaf but thought that I would try this one out. I was a bit disappointed with it. I do agree with another reviewer to cut down on some of the overpowered it a bit. I wish I knew why this wasn't - Read more ...
  7. I will replace my old meatloaf recipe w/ this one. I too used Italian bread crumbs cooked it for 1 1/2 hr w/ the last 20 minutes uncovered & sprinkled Mozzarella on top for the last 5 minutes of baking. My husband said it made the best meatloaf sandwich he's ever eaten.
  8. We love this recipe!! I use only half of the diced tomatoes it seemed a little soupy. I also have a hard time getting it all to fit in one pan I usually split it and make two smaller loaves.
