I was craving comfort food, and based on the reviews, decided to give this a try. No one in my family would eat this -- including me. I thought it was awful as did my husband and kids. Bummer.
Great taste. Second time added tablespoon of chili powder. Lingering garlic taste is great. The first was firm and I sliced it and froze in slices. They reheated great. Second time couldn't find ground sirloin got 85% ground chuck. Bad idea. Very loose but taste was good.
I think my expectations were a little higher; It smelled so good while I was mixing all the ingredients; the finished product was good, but it didn't knock my socks off.
Everyone in my family loved this recipe. I didn't have time to make breadcrumbs so I used Italian style breadcrumbs that I had on hand. Added 1T. vinegar to 1 c. milk to make quick buttermilk. We'll definitely make this recipe again. I agree with another poster about prepping ahead of time to make assembly easier.
I didn't feel like messing with the bread step, so I just used panko. The family loves it. The buttermilk adds a depth and I love the cheese in it. Just served with some mashed potatoes and a salad for a healthy version of this classic. It's definitely going to be a staple in our house!
Excellent meat loaf. Basically followed directions except we cooked the onions & first mixed everything together except the crumbs & sirloin, to avoid overworking the meat. Formed a free-standing 9x5 loaf rather than using a tin, so it was done a little sooner. Served with CL's roasted cauliflower. Very tasty, comfort food.
I love this recipe! I think the buttermilk must make the difference. I usually put it in a drain meatloaf pan to get extra fat out, but might try the mold way described previously.
Great recipe. Very flavorful. I took another reviewers advice and made a mold instead of using a loaf pan. Very easy and perfect for a work night. Served with mashed potatoes and green beans.
I made this on the fly so I was missing some ingredients. I used crackers for bread, 1% milk for buttermilk, and oregano for parsley. It was amazing. From a family who didn't love meatloaf--we are now converts!
This was good, but I felt it was lacking flavor. I did substitute oats for the bread, so maybe that was it, but next time I would add italian seasoning or oregano to flavor it a bit.
This was a great meatloaf recipe and it was even better with the Potato and Root Vegetable Mashers recipe!
This meatloaf was extra tasty. We usually do a turkey meatloaf, but we tried the recipe as is and my family truly loved it. The only modification I made was to bake it on a sheet pan in a loaf shape - we like all the extra crunchiness that you get on the surface of the meatloaf. We will definitely be making this again!
I don't consider myself to be a meatloaf person but this was fantastic! Loved the addition of the cheese - so good. Portions are quite ample. My family loved this - especially my 8 year old. Will have to make this again.
I am not a meatloaf person but my husband is. We both enjoyed this meal, as did my 1 year old. I used meatloaf mixture (beef/pork/veal) and drained off a lot of the fat as it baked. I think I would try again with ground chicken also. One serving is a nice sized portion. I baked it the night before and then reheated straight from the fridge at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, which gave it the nice carmelized edges - it did not have those at the first baking. I served it with a mixture of mashed yukon golds and sweet potatoes, and a side of steamed corn and peas. Very filling all around!
Fantastic meat loaf! Used ground turkey instead and was delicious.
This was the best meatloaf. It even beat my moms and that is saying a lot. The cheese was the big hit. The way it mealted into the pan around the edges was to die for. I did not use a loaf pan so I was able to peel the cheese from the pan which was crispy around the edges :-)
Made this for dinner tonight because the picture kept making my mouth water. It was sooo good! Might add a touch more cheese next time, but it was delicious and I will definitely be making this again. It was a nice change to my regular meatloaf. Defiantly a keeper- made exactly as directed. Yummy!
I loved this version of an all American classic. Would have been a breeze if I had gotten my ingredients prepped before I started. So toast bread crumbs, chopped onion and parsley, and beat eggs before you start combining.
