"A wonderfully tasty recipe with an Italian slant. This meatloaf is even better a day or two after it's cooked. Great for sandwiches, too. Serve with mashed potatoes, steamed veggies, and gravy!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Was going to make meatloaf tonight, so I decieded to give it a shot. Did not make the sauce, as I was short on time. Used favorite canned sauce. Was worried I wouldn't be able to find Creole seasoning in my Yankee grocery store but low and behold- there it was. This gives it a very interesting flavor. Fun to make, and pretty easy. My husband and I both liked it. TIP- be sure to mix dry ingredients before you try to mix them into the meat.
The only reason I am not giving this a 5 star rating is because of the time/effort to put the meal together. It tasted great, but it was just way to time consuming for me. I might try it again, but next time I will omit the homemade sauce and use a basil marinara from a jar instead ;-)
Tastes great and a very firm loaf so its filling but the amount of work involved was time consuming. This also meant for a lot more dishes to wash :( Hubby really liked it for sandwiches though since it holds its shape better than most meatloaves. I couldn't find creole seasoning in the grocery store so I used the adobe seasoning I made up, also found on this site. Don't be put off with the amount of sauce it makes because once in the oven it will thicken.
Good flavor, but a bit sloppy in presentation.
This is good. I made the home made sauce which is an extra step but does have loads of flavor and makes the meatloaf tender. I did not add cheese because I did not have any and this was still really good. This is a time consuming meatloaf but can be broken into stages to make it easier. Next time I make it, I will make the sauce a day or two before and store in the fridge until I am ready to make the loaf. Thanks for the recipe!
Did take a long time but to me it was so worth it! Cant wait for lunch left overs tomorrow!
