    Followed the recipe exactly, but just seemed off. The meatloaf was not as flavorful as it could have been and the texture seemed off-it was too soft. It was done, but it seemed like it wasnt cooked enough. We have tried other meatloaf recipes that have turned out much better.
    I thought it was okay but the mother n law really liked it so I'll probably make it again for her

    really good flavor and super easy to make; although, I didn't have milk so I used chicken stock instead which I think made it too moist

    I didn't catch the additional 15 minutes extra cooking time after the initial 40 minutes. So it was a little undercooked, microwaved the pieces after that so ok. They should say straight up that cooking time is 1 hour or so.

    I did it 1/3 cup of milk and one egg instead and half cup of bread crumbs turned out better then ever the whole thing is gone ❤️❤️❤️

    It had great flavor, but wasn’t very firm. I’d replace the milk with an egg.

    Super easy just like the title says. Delicious basic meatloaf, tweak it however you want to your tastes. I substituted BBQ sauce for the ketchup and topped with cheese. Yum!

    So easy to make and the whole table enjoyed it! It turned out really moist and tasty. If I could make any changes I would use less ketchup and toss in some dozen peas and corn. At any rate, I will be making this again!
