"My family kept turning up their noses at my meatloaf. I tried several recipes in hopes of finding one that they would all like. They told it was just too darn plain for their taste. I tried adding oatmeal or rice instead of dry bread crumbs, adding different kinds of veggies, I used canned tomatoes, or ketchup, or tomato paste, or different styles of tomato sauce, even different spices until I came up with this one. When I saw all plates clean and being asked for more, I knew I had found the one they liked and the keeper for our family."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (1 ounce) envelope
dry onion soup mix

garlic and herb seasoning blend (such as Mrs. Dash®)
simple dish-great for the weekday meal. Perfect as " a little something different".
This meatloaf was delicious although I did have a couple small changes to it. I used garlic and onion tomato sauce since my grocery store did not have the Mexican tomato sauce. I added about 8 shakes of Tabasco sauce for the missing heat. I also used 1 teaspoon garlic powder, half teaspoon oregano, half teaspoon basil and half teaspoon parsley since I don't have the Mrs.Dash. I also only used 11/2lbs ground turkey because that was the amount I had frozen. This was the first meatloaf that I loved and didn't smother in ketchup!
This was a nice twist on meatloaf, even my picky husband enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing!
i tried it with the quinoa customization and i can't help but wonder if it should have been cooked before it was added to the mixture because it got all crumbly.
i reduced the beef to use 12 oz of chorizo and it added some heat to the meatloaf.
can't wait to make this again. YUM YUM YUM YUM YUM!!!!!!
I used quinoa instead of bread crumbs and everyone really loved it.
