Grandma's Meatloaf

Tried and True, this recipe was passed down to me from my maternal Grandmother. It is the meatloaf that she used to serve for Sunday dinner and has been a favorite of our family for as long as I can remember! Grandma always served it with scalloped potatoes and creamed corn. Try it with your favorite salad and vegetable side dishes.

My family had this today we loved it. It was easy to make and tasted great. I used half chili and half ketchup,

We loved this! I've always made a good meatloaf, but the other half says this is the one he wants from now on! I follow the recipe exactly and it has been perfect every time I've made it. I make a little extra glaze to spread on sandwiches for later.

Our new favorite meatloaf-and our other recipe was really good! I've made it three times in two months because it also makes great sandwiches.

I've become a bit of a meatloaf nut in the past couple of years, trying a variety of approaches. This is the best so far. I used 1 lb of hot Italian sausage and 1.5 lbs ground beef. Nice addition. Whole family loved it.

This is a super yummy meatloaf! I used the chili sauce and doubled the glaze. Since I completely spaced out while I was shopping and forgot the tomato paste, I used some of the glaze mixture in the meatloaf. I also sauteed some green bell pepper with the onion and used garlic

Very delicious.

My son begs for me to make this meatloaf over and over again! It is fantastic! I add green bell peppers just because I believe they have to be in meatloaf. Also, I replace the saltines with Ritz (registered trademark) crackers because they provide the same thickening effect with a buttery flavor. :-)

Sauce / glaze was excellent. Meatloaf had good consistency but not much flavor, mostly just tasted like ground beef. Would add sauce into the meat before mixing next time.
