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.

Turned out pretty good, I never thought of using chili sauce, I love that sauce...way better than ketchup!

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.

I love this meatloaf. We've had it a few times. The last time I made it I didn't see any specific measurements? I'm not sure why. Maybe a big oven bug. The meatloaf is delicious!

Made it using breadcrumbs instead of crackers. Moist, tasty and the kids loved it.

This was a delicious meatloaf. I used ground turkey and added chopped green pepper. The whole family loved it and asked for seconds. Will definitely make again.

Probably the best meatloaf I've ever made. Everyone cleared off their plates. Lol. We did add celery to the batch tho, and it helped give alittle crunch. Definitely going to be my go-to recipe. 5 stars!!

The meat: this one was one of the more time-consuming meatloaf recipes to put together and definitely the most bland in taste. No bang for the buck at all. Husband and guests all hated it and I had to make another meal on the fly. The glaze : simple but yet a little unique, my favorite glaze yet - I plan to use it again and again and making this recipe was more than worth the time and trouble to discover this easy-to-make yummy glaze.

This is a fantastic recipe. I made it for my husband who loves meatloaf. The glaze makes this dish and I would definitely recommend making extra. Will definitely make again.

Excellent meatloaf! I used a Thai pepper sauce with the glaze and made a double batch. Having a little extra glaze to pour over the top while on my plate really put it over the top. 85% lean ground beef was just right. Not too dry and not too fatty. My family loved it. I will definitely be making it again.

Anything that I can get all three boys to eat is a 5 star for me.
