I decided to make a serious attempt at using the ingredients stated, but adjust the proportion of them & try to turn this into a real meatloaf. It wasn't a half-bad effort. I'm not sure I remember completely, but I THINK that I used like 2 cans of tomato paste, 1-2 eggs, and then used 3 tbsp of garlic *powder* (to hopefully keep some flavor, rather than just reducing it to practically nothing), and then did 1 tsp. of seasoning salt. I don't know bread crumbs in ounces, but I think it was 1 cup -- I added that last, until it seemed a good consistency. In the end, it wasn't bad this way but could've used more flavor. And I didn't have any issues with it burning on the outside before getting done in the middle. (I'm inclined to believe that's only cause it *looks* not done cause it's red from tomato paste.) I noticed one person called it a "normal" meatloaf recipe except the measurement were accidentally off. Well, I can certainly forgive accidentally writing tablespoon instead of teaspoon, but when you have to adjust practically every ingredient so drastically!, this is no longer an accidental mistake in listing, and it certainly doesn't deserve a 4 after having to fix everything. What I got out of it, after fixing it, was maybe still only a 3. And I'm certainly not going to rate it a 3 when I had to intentionally set out to see how I could fix what was an obviously messed up recipe. (Or perhaps it was a joke -- that had not occured to me.)
