"You can't top a hearty helping of meat loaf with creamy mashed potatoes on the side,' writes Karen Laubman from Spruce Grove, Alberta. 'This tender, moist meat loaf with a hint of cheese is a big hit at our house. The addition of oats boosts its nutritional value.'" — Karen Laubman

A wonderful recipe, but why all the steps to prepare it? I put everything but the meat into a large bowl. Mix that up well and then add the meat. If your kids won't eat chunks of anything like onion. put the broth into the blender with whatever veggies you like (onion, peppers, celery, etc.), and blend. You get all the flavor and nutrition. There are only two of us, but I make the whole recipe, divide the finished meat loaf into 6 portions; put 5 of them into Tupperware square rounds and put them into the freezer. Then we can have meatloaf at the drop of a hat, whenever I can't think of whatever else to have for dinner. I love having something this good without having to cook.
I think that this is the worst meatloaf I have ever had or made. I was embarrassed to serve this to my husband. it smelled great cooking, but came out bland, mushy, and with a horrible texture. there is no saving this recipe. I can't believe I wasted money, food and time on this disaster. Does anyone know what meatloaf is supposed to taste like? apparently not.
I was a little skeptical during preparation because of the all the oatmeal, but it was delicious! I've tried 100's of meatloaves and are always just "okay", but, this one my husband even claimed to be better than his Mother's Famous Recipe!
I HATE meatloaf...I LOVED this meatloaf!
I cut receipe in half (two eggs), used a 9 X 13" glass pan, lined bottom of pan with bread slices. FABULOUS!
This recipe is fabulous- it has been named the "best meatloaf ever" in our house.
It has great flavor and did not crumble.
My changes- I halved the recipe and also added minced carrots.
Thanks for the great recipe!
There is no messing up this recipe! I also cut the recipe in half (6 servings) and added Monterey jalapeño cheese for a little zip.
This was ok, the flavor was great but I found that the cheese made it greasy. I will try this again using ground turkey to reduce the fat and less cheese baked in. Other than that, this recipe has the best flavor and texture I've found.
This is very good. My meatlof came out a bit "loose" and broke easily when I tried to remove it from the pan. The taste was good and DH really liked it. I love the addition of the oatmeal for fiber, but wonder if that led to it falling apart. I'm sure I will make this again!
