This is a great starter recipe for someone who is new to or has never had a meatloaf they enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this as a jumping off point for people. This recipe is fairly similar to the one I currently use. I usually don't measure when I make meatloaf, but I followed this recipe exactly to see if I liked the product better. I liked the addition of the lemon in the glaze as it adds a nice dimension to the flavor. However, I felt it was too overpowering to have the lemon in the meatloaf as well. It detracted too much from the savory flavors of the meatloaf and is primarily responsible for my 3-star rating. In addition, some of the proportions were off (for our tastes), leaving the meatloaf less firm and flavorful than when more onion and breadcrumbs and (non-lemon) glaze are used in the meat. I will go back to my favorite meatloaf recipe, but I WILL begin adding lemon juice to my glaze. This recipe is definitely worth a try, as I said, it is a great jumping off point. I think as people tweak it to their tastes, each person will find THEIR 5-star version of meatloaf.
