Mine is nearly the same as JMediger's with the exception I use saltine crackers as the main bread component. Each loaf is slightly different since I intentionally use no recipe, but the basics are the same each time.

The spices will vary upon my mood, as well as the topping/glaze. It could be plain ketchup, or BBQ sauce, or Italian Spiced Tomato Paste, or Oatmeal Crumble Topping.

Yum! Almost like a Stroganoff recipe in a meatloaf. It absolutely sounds delicious! I am going to try that for my next meatloat and make some homemade noodles.

I think I am already putting on weight! I love mushrooms and sour cream!

Here's one for your to try. I call it "Stuffed Meatloaf" with

1 lean ground beef (preferably Sirloin, but Chuck will do)
1/2 lb. Hot Italian Sausage
1 large egg
1 medium sized yellow onion, minced
1/4 cup grated Asiago Cheese
2 tbs. minced basil leaves
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. thyme powder
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic, or three cloves, minced
1/4 cup breadcrumbs

Lay a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet to cover. Mix all ingredients and spread evenly across the cookie sheet.

2 cups dried bread cubes
1/2 cup beef stock
1 lb. bacon, fried but still limp, chopped
1/4 cup minced bell pepper
1/2 cup cooked Orzo noodles
1/2 sup minced crab meat or shrimp
1 egg
1 tbs Old Bay Seasoning
2 tsp. powdered thyme
1 tsp. coarse grind black pepper

Combine stuffing ingredients and spread evenly over top of the meatloaf mixture. Using the parchment paper to assist, jelly roll the meatloaf and center on the cookie sheet (jellyroll pan). Bake until a meat thermometer reads 160 in the center of the loaf.

Remove the meatloaf from the oven and let cook for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with a lemon/tarragon/garlic compound butter.

Evaporated (or regular) milk--enough to moisten, but not enough to fall apart
Any spices you want to add. I usually add garlic.

Mix well, bake at 350 degrees F for 45 to 60 minutes (depending on how much ground beef).
I make one with oatmeal as well.

I like to sautee my onions in butter until soft, add some ketchup, and a little bit of a-1 steak sauce.

Always like it with oatmeal. Also like green olives mixed in, whole or chopped with pimento.

It's dramatic on a platter that has cooked egg noodles, the meatloaf and gravy poured on and piped stars of sour cream.
