Finally! I have a meatloaf recipe I can eat! Mom used to make a similar recipe that was decent. But I don't like meatloaf. Hubby loves it! So to give him a treat since I have been gone on vacation without him for three weeks (he had to work), I made this recipe for the first night I was back. I did add the brown sugar/ketchup to the top as suggested by another reviewer. I do not like the soft, mushy type meatloaf, so I usually cook it flatter so it will brown and have less chance to get mushy--more liquids bake out of it. I greased an 8" iron skillet, put the meatloaf in, spread it flat in the middle heaping up the sides a little more than the middle, mixed about 1/4 cup of the meatloaf mixture in with the brown sugar mixture, and poured it over the top. (I had to use CheezIt White Cheddar crackers since I had no other crackers in the house.) The recipe was very, very good. The top browned nicely, and it was more crispy (like I like it). The CheezIt crackers did it no favors (made it mushy), and I will plan to use hard crackers next time. It was excellent, and I actually had a second, small serving (which I never have done with meatloaf in my life!) I will definitely use this recipe again and again. Thanks!
Next time, I think I will try some flavored crackers--garlic, basil or ?
