Don't have a best because we like to make different style meatloafs. Tex-Mex, Italian, SW etc. They use the same meat mixture, just variations on the other ingredients, herbs and spices.

This is what I do ... Beat one egg, mix in a 1/4 cup of milk, a 1/4 cup of bread crumbs, a diced medium onion, salt, pepper, and oregano. I let that sit for about 10 minutes then mix in 1 lb of hamburger. I bake it for about 45 minutes in a loaf pan. DH is a fan and he's not really a meatloaf fan ... I think using the crumbs and milk rather than a piece of torn bread and water helps it stay moist.

Here's a link to a recipe that is fantastic. Everyone I've made it for loves it...

...except my SO, so I don't get to eat it.

Bacon Cheeseburger Meatloaf Recipe

I modified the recipe to use a full pound of bacon that I cooked and crumbled.

My mom's meatloaf is my favorite:

1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef (or ground buffalo--even better)
An egg
Small to medium onion, chopped
A couple big handfuls of uncooked oatmeal
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).

Very tough question. I like playing with different flavors and meatloaf. I've made many excellent meatloaves...I think my favorite was a Beef Stroganoff Meatloaf I made.

LOL! Almost the same meatloaf my Mom taught me. There is something about the oatmeal and the evaporated milk that makes it so moist. Really, the only thing different is I add 2 eggs beaten and a couple of shakes of Worchestershire sauce -- Oh, and I am a big fan of celery leaves chopped into it too. Very basic and very good.

Basic meatloaf recipe, no extra flavors. Pat out flat into a rectangle and spread on the middle half, sauteed mushrooms, onions and garlic, spread out sour cream. Fold each end in and bake until done. Prepare a mushroom gravy for pouring on top to serve. It's dramatic on a platter that has cooked egg noodles, the meatloaf and gravy poured on and piped stars of sour cream.
