This was very good. It has a dense, even texture that slices easily, essential for sandwiches. I used about 1-1/2 lbs of ground beef, with about 1/2 lb ground pork, and it took a full 2 hours to cook, and that was even turning the oven up first to 420 and finally to 450°! So by the time we ate, we were all good and hungry! -:) I only had plain breadcrumbs, so I added generous amounts of oregano, basil, marjoram and garlic
powder. I used a couple Tbl of dry minced onion instead of fresh, and just under 1 C of milk. I also added about 2 tsp Worstershire, and used bottled BBQ sauce for the top glaze.
My husband said I should use this recipe for all future meatloafs, so thiat's high praise!
UPDATE: Not long after I wrote this, I discovered that my oven has serious problems maintaining temperature! So you all should probably ignore that bit about taking so long to bake!
