Mine usually falls apart because I can never pack it tight enough. lol. I also like to put a dash of A1 in there!

Mine consists of a base of ground beef, milk and white bread (crumbs), which gives it a great consistency, and then the flavor comes from the spices I put in, along with Worteshire (sp?) sauce.  I can PM it to you or post if here if you’d like!  It’s delicious (if I do so say myself), it is one of my staples for having people over and they always love it.

it’s very easy to make, don’t be nervous! i always use ketchup and the onion soup mix. mix it all together with your hands, it makes it easier.

I use ground beef, eggs, ketchup, some garlic powder, a pack of Mrs. Grass onion soup mix and a few slices of bread that I tear up myself.  Something about the actual bread bits instead of crumbs makes my boy go crazy for meatloaf.  He actually wants me to make it every Monday, and he and his friends have donned it “Magical Meatloaf Monday” so I had to turn a 1 lb of beef recipe to a 3 lb recipe! I do also add in the Worcester sauce from time to time… to mix it up. 😉 Good luck!

I use 1 egg per pound, crackers (apparently I should try bread! lol) ketchup, mustard, woshtisire sauce, dash of A1, onion and I top it with regular bbq sauce. It’s easy, mine just never sticks together.

ETA: @Abbee-I’d love to try the recipe, too if you don’t mind! Might give me a better idea of what do do! = )

The BEST meatloaf your man will EVER eat is the recipe by Katie Lee Joel. Seriously, RUN to the store and get the ingredients!!! It’s handsdown the most amazing thing ever, and I am making it tomorrow, too. Here’s the recipe:

PS – the dry bread crumbs she uses are what you would use to make fried chicken cutlets, and instead of making one big loaf, I usually divide the meat after I am done mixing and make two smaller loafs.

I use 1 lb turkey ground and 1lb ground round.  Add in 2 eggs, 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs, chopped onion, chopped mushrooms (gives it moisture) and some worchestshire sauce to taste and some salt n pepper. 

In a separate dish I mix equal parts of ketchup to honey mustard and add in a few tablespoons of brown sugar.  Glaze it over the top w/this mixture (really good) and then put in oven at about 350 and bake until ready.  Just check it periodically.

I like to use cornbread crumbs or cornmeal.  Gives it a southern kick!
