turned out really well and we had enoughto make two which is great because I dont have to cook dinner another night this week ;) it did feel like it was missing something. Next time (because im definitely making this again) we might try adding some sausage or ground beef or maybe some veggies to give it a little something extra!

This is a great starter recipe to have in your toolkit. Only modification I made was 1lb ground beef for 1lb Italian sausage.
its delicious everytime, i just leave the mustard out though and turns out sooo good. i never had great meatloaf ever but this one is delicious.

Delicious and very moist! I only used 1/4 cup of mustard and added about a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Quick to prepare and bakes nicely in an hour. It's the first time I've made a meatloaf without using a loaf pan and it worked very well.
I did not modify.It turned out mushy. Won't be making it again.
It turned out good. I will make this again.

This was sooo good. I'll have to glaze it next time. Was good with spicy BBQ sauce.

The recipe was easy but my mom always used crackers instead of breadcrumbs I think like the consistency of crackers vs breadcrumbs bit I would use the same recipe it was tasty

This was just not to our taste at all. We reduced the amount of mustard in the recipe and it was still just so overpowering. I took one bite and made a sandwich, my husband (who loves mustard in all forms) thought it was overkill, and my kids finished their vegetables without any prodding but left half of this on their plates. I don't know if i messed up or what, but this was a no.

Good basic meatloaf. I made it as written and will probably tweak it next time. It was a little on the bland side. Awesome starting point for a tasty meal.

My go to recipe for meatloaf. Fantastic!!! Even the kids love it. I would never use another recipe again.

Very delicous meatloaf with a great balance of flavors. Love the dijon mustard which adds a unique flavor. Turned out very moist and flavorful.

This was so soft and delicious! I used veal and pork mince and used bottled bbq sauce to glaze. The family ate it all. I served it with lemon roasted potatoes (a popular yummly recipe) and steamed broccoli and beans. Will definitely make this again!!!

There are all kinds of recipes out there but this is the best basic meatloaf recipe is the best yumm

Such a good recipe! I used Dijon instead of regular mustard as recommended. I did change up the glaze a bit putting equal parts ketchup and Sriracha sauce and just a tiny bit of brown sugar. Wow it really gave it such a great taste. Will definitely make it again.

This is our new go to recipe for meatloaf. Don't skip the dijon! It really did make the dish flavorful. The only change I made was adding green pepper.

The recipe name says it all. I only used ground beef and subbed a sweet BBQ sauce for the ketchup which everyone enjoyed. I will probably use a spicier glaze next time and blend the ground beef with some sausage for added depth.

This meatloaf was tasty! Used regular mustard instead of Dijon and added green onion instead of regular onion and it turned out well - great for a low effort meal
