it was definitely a yummy and juicy meatloaf and I would make it again. I would make it with minced garlic next time, as other reviewers suggested. It actually stayed together in loaf form, and I didn't expect that! The main reason I give it only 3 stars is that it could have been more flavorful (although DOUBLE the sauce - it's delish!) but mostly because the recipe calls for sliced mushrooms. When I mixed the meat mixture together I really felt like I should chop the mushrooms a little more. But I kept to the recipe (I made it exactly as written.) The sliced mushrooms were a little too big and looked weird and made the loaf fall apart more than it would have - again - it DID stay together better than I expected, but had the mushrooms been chopped, it would have been MUCH better, texture-wise. I'd probably recommend 1/2 inch dice for the mushrooms or even, maybe I'll throw 'em in the food processor to get a nice even rough chop. You could even throw in fresh onion and garlic too (first, before mushrooms) to get a nice homogenous mix before adding to the eggs, milk, breadcrumbs....I'll do that next time.
