I don't even like meatloaf, but I kind of tweaked the recipe, and it's AWESOME!!! I didn't have panko crumbs, so I just used regular bread crumbs (a little more than 1 cup). I also am not a fan of ketchup, so I used 1 part ketchup, 1 part BBQ sauce, 1 part steak sauce, with a little bit of Worchestershire. THe meatloaf turned out moist and absolutely delicious! You have made me into a meatloaf believer!!

This meatloaf is a mouthful of ketchup. Followed directions to the tee and only tasted ketchup. A hundred times YUCK. Threw it out.

I was looking for a recipe that used Panko (Japanese Bread Crumbs) and this was it. What a great meatloaf. Panko has better flavor and texture than regular bread crumbs. I did "doctor up" the Panko with garlic salt, Adobe (secret ingredient) and pepper. Then added a little italian seasoning for color. I did use a little more Panko than the 1 cup. It needed a little firmer texture. The author is right, eyeball it! Lastly I added some finely chopped onion. This won some rave reviews on a cold Oct day in NE while watching the NE Patriots. Not typical "Football" food, but everyone had seconds :) I also made some Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic. Yum!

I'm not a big fan of meatloaf, but it is my son's favorite dish. I am always looking for one that I can make that I will like better. Thanks Jackie, I found it. This one is going in the file box and the search is over. Ease of preperation is a big plus too.

Very good and very easy. I had leftover Panko crumbs to use and this was a perfect choice. I did use some chopped onion and minced garlic instead of the powders. Also, I added some chopped red bell pepper, celery and shredded carrots. I added worcestershire as someone else suggested. I guess I am saying this is a good base recipe and add what you like.

I am glad I now have another recipe for my panko bread crumbs! This was delicious and moist. I did substitute fresh onions and garlic for the powders.

This was a nice meal. The texture was great, it held together and didn't fall apart and wasn't mealy or bready. I was a little apprehensive using all that garlic and onion powder 1 T each seemed like a lot, so I used about 2 tsp of each instead. Next time, I will use the full amount. I did add another 1/4 ketchup. Overall, a nice meatloaf, basic and simple, and nothing for picky eaters to complain about either! Great for kids, maybe a bit bland for grown up tastes. Thanks.
