Yummy Meatloaf

Recipe by  

"What makes this meatloaf so good is how you cook it! It's very important to cook this in a baking dish rather than a loaf pan. The grease will drain from the meatloaf this way, and it will be firmer and taste better."

Great recipe! Don't use A1 steak sauce. I made that mistake the first time. Second time, I used Worsteshire steak sauce and it turned out awesome! Sure keeper!

We did not like this meatloaf. It was very bland and mushy/soggy because of the crackers. I will not be making this again.

This was very yummy and quick to make. I didn't use a whole thing of crackers, I used less than half and used both worschesire sauce and a bit of A-1 steak sauce. I can't for the life of me remember where I read to have a less soggy and mushy meatloaf to use a bigger pan instead so that the juice it makes has room to spread and not drown the loaf and I've found this to make it even better! Might have an issue of First for Women. Will use this again! Thanks for sharing!

My family loves this recipe. I changed it up a little with leaving out the onions and putting in about 1/4 a package of onion soup instead and it was awesome. This is a recipe that I will make again and again.

I have made this meatloaf numerous times. It is a good, classic recipe. I have added my own different spices each time to change it up a bit. One thing that I would suggest though is to use a lot less water. The first time I made it I used the full amount and it come out a bit on the runny side.

This meat loaf was very tasty. I have been using the same recipe for years and thought I would try something new. I have made this numerous times.
