I have made it, it's great! But I was considering incorporating the mustard and chopped pickles into the meatloaf...I love cooked pickles.

Put the mustard and pickles on top instead of ketchup.

Excellent advice. I would add just one more. Purchase those individual foil disposable mini loaf pans for his. That is more than plenty for him.

I never tried it but I have seen the suggestion of making the mini meatloaves in a muffin pan. They cook quicker and each person gets their own little meatloaf. I wonder if you could form them in the muffin pan and then pop them out and bake them on a baking sheet so they cook all around.

I do the opposite with the foil. The foil goes on for 1/2 hour then comes off for the remainder of the cooking time. My mother never covered her meatloaf at all.

You could, but then you'd have another pan to wash. You can also form a good-size meatball with your hands and flatten it slightly as you put it on the sheet pan.

You could, but to me, that's an unnecessary expense and waste of foil. I try not to use disposables any more than necessary. It's easy enough to form small loaves with your hands.

I have never had a dishwasher and having another pan never bothered me. I wash things as I go along, and by the time we are eating dinner, everything is clean and put away except for the dishes we are eating on.

Well, then, it's not a problem for you For me, though, I try to be thrifty and not waste water, soap and time when it's not necessary. YMMV.
