"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!"

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.
Did take a long time but to me it was so worth it! Cant wait for lunch left overs tomorrow!
