Yes I did. Since I'm a virtual neophyte at meatloaf I'm building up a repertoire. I never even tasted it until I was 23. My usual meatloaf was Ol Blue's recipe, or I'd toss a package of onion soup mix into some ground beef and bread crumbs. Not so tasty. This one was a definite keeper.

Wow lots of great looking recipes. One little trick. When you have it all mixed make yourself a little patty and fry it and eat it. Then you can check seasoning (or if it tastes like it was boiled- yikes)

This thread got me looking and I found an Ol-Blue recipe for meatloaf with beefy onion soup mix and packaged stuffing mix. I haven't tried it yet.

I was really embarrassed when I read this thread--I don't have a recipe for meatloaf, I just do it. Sometimes it has grated carrot in it, sometimes it has salsa and chard in it, sometimes it is "cabbage roll" meatloaf, but I must confess, I don't have a recipe. I do it be "guess and by golly." Amazing that so many folks have meatloaf recipes. And it is so embarrassing not to have one.

Don't be embarrassed. Lots of folks throw together their meatloaf. Around here it's called garbage loaf. I think a more appropriate term might be mustgo loaf.
No need to feel embarrassed...

I don't make meatloaf. I have been banned from making it. Spike makes it for me. For Mother's Day, my daughter made me one. I have to make the world's worst one.

Hey anyone care to come for supper? Meatloaf is on the menu, made by me.

Welcome back.

I have recipes for ML because I like to be able to recreate a tasty dish. Nothing worse than having someone say they loved the last one and make it the same way and you can't.

Well...I thought that was you! We are so happy you came home. We have been missing you. In my family, you are not supposed to have a meatloaf recipe. You are just expected to know how to make it with whatever you have on hand.

I've learned to do that for some chicken wing recipes I've thrown together. I just want to recreate it for ME
