This was my first attempt at "fake" meatloaf. When I told my meat-eating boyfriend what I was making for dinner, he was pretty dubious. He said it was very good, even though it didn't quite taste like meat. The next night I found him eating the rest of it straight out of the pan! Great basic recipe to build on. I made some changes to make it more like my mom's meatloaf, and didn't really measure anything. I made it in a loaf pan and skipped the veggies (I made mashed potatoes instead with Yukon Golds - yum!). I omitted the worcestershire sauce and mustard because I didn't have any on hand. I used corn flakes instead of bread cubes and ketchup instead of tomato sauce. I added a lot of ketchup to the mix as well as on top, which I think helped it be very moist inside, if somewhat crumbly. I added maybe half a large onion and several cloves of garlic that I smashed with a knife. Then for herbs I poured on a bunch of Bell's poultry seasoning till I thought it looked good. I followed the recipe on everything else.
