I'm on the fence with this recipe. First let me say that the texture is wonderful. It's tender, holds together well, and is moist, despite my using 93/7 lean ground beef. However, even after "doctoring" up the mixture with some substitutions/additions, it was still pretty bland. I used bloody mary mix in place of the tomato juice. The kind I buy is pretty zippy, so I was surprised I couldn't even taste it. I also added a dash of garlic powder in the mix and topped the loaf with a glaze made of ketchup, dijon mustard, and brown sugar. I can't imagine what it would've tasted like without these additions. I will probably make it again but with additional tweaking. I think I'll serve the leftovers with Lawry's season salt (kind of sweet/salty), ketchup and/or marinara.
