I expected more, based on the reviews. I made a double batch of this, and added Worcestershire sauce to one of them. It wasn't anything special, but perhaps with some tweaking, it would be pretty good. I did use seasoned bread crumbs. I think if I make this again, I would cut back 1/4-1/2 cup of the breadcrumbs and the milk. It almost gave it a bit of a mushy texture; not firm like meat. If you like it like that, fine; but if you like a firmer consistency, I would lighten those 2 things up. I will also add some seasonings next time, and I think with those few changes, it would be a lot better. Good starting base though. Oh, and the sauce basically just tastes like what you would imagine ketchup and mustard and sugar would taste like mixed together. Not horrible, but nothing special.
2nd time- doubled the batch, except for the crumbs and milk; kept those at 1c each. Added 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1.5 tsp italian seasoning, and 2 good teaspoons of minced garlic. Also takes about 1hr 20-30 min to cook, 2 loaf pans for double batch. Flavor was better this time, texture wasn't mushy, but, it wasn't firm like meatloaf, it fell apart when slicing, but tasted great.When I took it out of the oven, there was liquid about 3/4 way up pan,so I'm glad I didn't double the milk! On 3rd try, I may add more crumbs, or cook a bit longer just for firmness. Taste was much better 2nd time than 1st. also ommited wor.sauce this time.
