We did not care for this meat loaf.
This recipe was so-so. The meatloaf really did not hold together that well, it was really moist so fell apart easily. I did use ground turkey instead of beef due to food allergies. For my picky eaters I used onion powder instead of chopped onions. It was a bit on the bland side and should have looked at reviews of the original recipe first and seasoned appropriately:/ My kids did like the sauce that was on top.
If you don't use all the milk they suggest, this is great. The mixture gets too soupy with a full cup of milk and only one egg. The carrots were great in there, it added a little sweetness and you couldn't really tell they were carrots. I am making this again tonight.
This is my favorite meatloaf recipe. Every time I make it, it turns out really well and very flavorful. I use 99/1 extra lean ground turkey for this recipe, grate the carrot extra fine so it's almost a puree, and chop the onion really small too. It holds together really well (no crumbling) and comes out really moist.
Agree. Didn't hold together very well and was very moist. I also used ground turkey for health reasons. I seasoned it with more of my normal seasons vs just salt/pepper so even though the consistency was not the best, it still tasted great and my hubby went back for seconds. Sauce was delicious too.
