I make this "almost" as is, but will change things depending on the ingredients on hand...for example, it calls for 1.5 pounds of meat...I happened to have 1 lb. beef and 1 lb pork (2 lbs. total), so I mixed them...delicious. Another time I had saltines and used them in place of butter crackers. Delicious. It's a basic ratio recipe, and the family (including very picky kids) eat it and go back for seconds, and their friends eat it and approve. My daughter (16) said "why does everyone complain about meatloaf? It's delcious!" I think it's because many people put in onions, bell pepper, etc. and kids just don't like crunchy mystery chunks in their food. They will when they get older...but for now, this meal is good and much better than eating something from a fast food joint. Mine will eat green beans as a side to it. Anyway, I've made this several times, with slight variations to the amounts, etc...but it comes out great each time. There are lots of good meatloaf recipes, but this is simple and gets approval from everyone, so it is now my go to recipe.
