This recipe was incredibly good. I used all ground beef instead of a mixure with pork and veal (less fat!) and it was still great. My husband loved it, too.

I tried this recipe as a deviation from my usual meat loaf. I thought it was a horrible combination of ingredients. The best part was the mustard/ketsup sauce on top. I'll try that in the future on my own recipe. I also liked the texture of the mixed meats over pure beef. However the mix of mozzarella/mustard/oregano flavors was a bit bizarre for me. My 2 yr old liked it. We all ate it, but I wouldn't make it again.

This was good, my husband loved it. I added some A1 sauce, garlic salt, and minced onions. I also used a mixture of cheddar, jack, parmesan instead of all mozzarella. I then flattened it out on plastic wrap to a rectangle shape, added the cheese to the top and rolled it up sealing the edges. I cooked it on a rack over a pan so the fat would drip off as it cooked. Delicous!

Delicious! **Helpful meatloaf tip: place slices of bread under meatloaf, they will abosrb all the excess grease.

this is very good. My 17 year old that does not like meatloaf tried it and liked it very much and said she would eat it again. I always made the meatloaf off the oatmeal box but I will be using this one now

I have to say, I don't cook much and when ever I try a new recipe it never seems to come out right.This one however is the best darn meat loaf I have ever had! I used half pork and half beef and I could'nt believe the flavor.If I could do it, anyone can.

I loved this!!! I made some changes to the original recipe though. I used a mixture of cheeses and added some garlic. I used ground sirloin and pork for the meat. I chopped up onions and mushrooms (without cooking them) and put it in there too. For the ketchup and mustard mixture I also added about a tbl or so of brown sugar. I'm not fond of mustard so I covered up the taste a little. My husband liked this more than the recipe I usually use. I will make this again and try some new variations on it.
