Sometimes its best not to mess with success. I have a terrific meatloaf recipe, but have been making it so often, I figured it was time for something new. I made this recipe as is and I found it very very bland. My husband said it was like eating a big hamburger patty. The sauce on top was really delicious, but improvements must be made to the meat to give it more flavor. Some suggestions from my other recipe would be to add some spice to the meat mixture (1/2 tsp cayenne pepper and 1 tsp chili powder), use store bought croutons (6 oz) and puree them to a fine powder instead of the dry bread crumbs. Additionally I would add one finely chopped carrot, 1/2 an onion and 1/2 bell pepper to the meat mixture to give it some variation of flavor and texture. I think I may try a marriage of this topping with my meatloaf "meat" recipe and see if it is better. Or I might just go back to my standby!
