An Old Family Favorite...my father's meatloaf recipe is easy to make, moist and flavorful. I don't consider it to be unique or unusual, as it is just a very delicious, balanced recipe. The soft fresh bread crumbs, evaporated milk and egg combine to make it less dense and the parsley adds a nice taste. The free-form shape adds a touch of rustic charm. Often times, my father will use rye or sourdough bread for making his crumbs, making for a subtle yet interesting change of taste. Leftovers, if there are any, make a delicious hearty sandwich the next day.

livluvlaff247 , 1 months agoFirst of all- YUM! This is the first meat loaf over ever made, and the only one I will ever make as long as I live. But I didn't follow the steps at ALL! I literally took all the ingredients, threw them in a bowl, mixed up by hand, and baked. I used Scotch Bonnet hop pepper sauce in the topping, with a little more ketchup and more honey. It wa perfect!
MississippiMule , 2 months agoThis is the best meatloaf I have ever had - I love meatloaf and I am 70 years old so you know I have tried tons of meatloaf. My wife does not favor meatloaf but she had three helpings if this great dish. I have tried several of this gentleman's receipts and all have been excellent. The seasoning is right on target for my taste buds!! Thank you - I will make this dish again!!
flamdrag , 3 months agoI've made this at least a dozen times. Always comes out like a smooth loaf of yummy meat butter. I've started doubling the glaze to serve on the side because it's delicious and I'm greedy.
Ssuitepea , 4 months agoA lot easier than I thought! I used brown sugar and left out the cumin, peppers and parsley. It took about 85 minutes to cook, but I had two pounds of meat. I loved the sweet taste and will put this on my favorites!
Smashleelee , 5 months agoA ton of ingredients, but don't let that scare you. Not as hard as it looks. Turns out amazing!
bkrenee , 5 months agoI did not follow exact instructions, i just threw it all together and it still came out wonderfully.
Valerie411 , 7 months agoVery good tasting, but the glaze is a bit too sweet for my liking. Will definitely make again, but with slight adjustments.
bnewman27 , 7 months agoGood
Pasquale49 , 7 months agoMaking it again right now. If you.love meatloaf this is a good one.
Pattyirl329 , 7 months agoI've made this several times, the flavor is excellent, the only problem I'm having is I can't get consistency right. Loaf is very loose and falls apart. Would adding more bread or less liquid effect flavor?

thelittlemissmolly , 8 months agoGREAT recipe! I made this recipe as stated and then I divided the mixture into a cup cake pan for individual servings. Great out of the oven or from the freezer.... A must have recipe for a working single person.
Smashleelee , 9 months agoSo much flavor! I will be making this my go to meatloaf recipe.

Brittybabe90 , 10 months agoAmazing! I don't cook meatloaf that often but this recipe will definitely be used every time! I love cooking the onions, peppers, and garlic before baking. It gave the meatloaf a much more smooth, buttery texture!
Shacook , 11 months agoThis dish was a hit! Super easy and delicious. I have a 6 year old at home that is asking me to make it again.
JJKile , 12 months agoExcellent. Simple and easy but tasteful.
