Another review after a ton of modifications were made (mostly due to what I had on hand). No loaf pan, so used a foil lined large casserole (which kind of prevents putting the sauce on the bottom). One lb ground beef, to which I added a couple dashes of Worcestershire, garlic salt, onion salt, one egg, 1/4 tsp black pepper, about a 1/4 of the sauce mixture, and 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs. Nothing else (onion allergy). For the sauce I used a scant 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup honey chipotle BBQ sauce, 1/4 cup ketchup, and a couple of squirts of yellow mustard. I formed half of the meat into a loaf shape in the casserole, and smeared on about 1/3 of the remaining sauce. Layered the other half of meat on top of that, and smeared another 1/3 of the sauce all over the loaf. I reserved the remaining sauce to use as a dip. Baked at 350 for an hour with two baking potatoes (oiled and salted), and everything was done after the hour. The meatloaf needed salt (I only added garlic and onion salt, and not enough of those), and was a tad mushy (due to the panko, I think), but neither was the fault of the recipe. Great base recipe to make your own, since the meat IS a bit bland. But what a great jumping off point! I'll try again, as per the recipe, sans the onion, and continue to experiment until I find MY perfect meatloaf. Thanks for the great recipe!
