"Easy and tasty served either hot or cold, wonderful sliced cold for a picnic or sandwiches. We have enjoyed this basic meatloaf for many years.Try a change, instead of the usual topping, try your favourite salsa brushed on top, a nice Chipotle medium salsa is wonderful to top it off."

Delicious! Closest recipe I have tried that resembles what I grew up eating. I let it sit for about 20 minutes and then cut it to make it easier to slice into beautiful pieces that didn't fall apart.

Simple to make is always good but not as good as this meatloaf. We love everything about it! Taste, texture, topping to name a few. My husband had 3 pieces, so you know it's gonna be made again!

We liked this meatloaf! It was really firm and held together well while cutting. The sauce was good on the top and screamed comfort as we ate!

I figured it was time I get in here and do some of my reviews and I didn't want to forget this delicious meatloaf. It was so good that my kids licked their plates and asked for more. It is comfort on a plate served with mashed potatoes, applesauce and a pea, carrot, and mushroom veggie mix!

We inhaled this meatloaf and we thought it was incredibly delicious! My girls asked for more, which is unusual for them and I was so happy to see them eat every bite on their plates!
