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.

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.

Too sweet tasting for meatloaf I thought. Didn't like at all.

The sauce was great. But the meatloaf was dry and not very flavorful.
