Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now I know why this recipe is "Favorite Meatloaf". Now I know why this recipe is "Favorite Meatloaf". It will certainly be mine from now on! It is absolutely great. My family really enjoyed it and I will look no further for another meatloaf recipe. It was so easy with the help of the Stove Top Stuffing and so tasty, too. The Zesty Italian was a great touch too. Never thought of using it in this way too, other than for a salad dressing. The stuffing and the Zesty Italian gave the meatloaf a delicious flavor, and the finished product was so easy to slice and didn't fall apart like some meatloaves do. Top it with the ketchup and the cheddar cheese and you have a winner! Thanks so much for the recipe.

This is a WONDERFUL Basic Recipe, but how it turns out is based exactly on the flavor of Stove Top Stuffing you use and that you make sure that the ground meat used is very lean, whether it is beef, pork, turkey, or a combination. You can change the topping from the cheese to BBQ Sauce, Ketchup, A1 or Tomato Soup (or top with bacon slices). It is great to try different combinations, depending on what you or your family likes. My husband and I love this recipe! I have made it several different ways too and can be made into patties or meat balls. GREAT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe last night with ground turkey. I made this recipe last night with ground turkey. Because the reviews said it was a little bland, I changed a few of the ingredients: added salt, pepper and minced garlic to onions, used chili sauce instead of ketchup and tomato sauce instead of water. I didn't add the cheese because I used the chili sauce on top, also. I made it in six mini loaves and baked them 45 minutes. My husband raved!! It was very moist and flavorful! I will definitely make this again, although not too soon since I have four mini loaves in the freezer!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was a very good meatloaf recipe. This was a very good meatloaf recipe. To save reading all the reviews which basically indicate how good this is, the only changes I found that others made were to possibly omit the cheese (why add fat/calories) and crush the stuffing before blending with the meat. I did both of these and it was really a great dinner. Some say to bake 90 minutes, but if you use a 9x13 and shape as directed, it's only about 1-1/2 to 2 inches thick and should cook through in 60 minutes. Will definitely make this one of my top meatloaf recipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is such a great recipe. This is such a great recipe. Just a few ideas to enhance the flavor: I added a bit of onion soup mix, changed plain ketchup to a mixture of ketchup, bbq sauce, steak sauce, and other random condiments i had. it was awesome! also, i used stuffing mix for cornbread and it worked fine, and i crumbled some croutons in there too. Also, I used 2 lbs of ground TURKEY and it was AMAZING. i threw in some random flavors too, garlic powder, seasoned salt and the onions in the italian dressing are perfect! Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this recipe! I LOVE this recipe! So easy and tastes great. I bake it on a broiler-type pan so whatever fat is in the 93% ground beef I use drains off. And when I have it, I put a couple of slices of pre-cooked bacon on the top towards the end, under the cheese. (I do, however, use 1 whole egg instead of just the egg whites not being a egg white lover.) Onions smell so good sauteing in the dressing, too. Great for leftovers too -- warm meatloaf sandwiches. Yummm!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The recipe was easy to assemble. The recipe was easy to assemble. I baked it a bit longer while I did final preparations - it was still moist and perfectly cooked. I love meatloaf, but have never been good at making it. This would make a great family get together main course and would serve ample people - I think substituting bbque sauce for the ketchup would be a good alternative and may try that next time. It was also attractive to the eye which made it more appealing to eat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great recipe, I loved it as did my picky husband and kids but I did make a few changes like I used... Great recipe, I loved it as did my picky husband and kids but I did make a few changes like I used turkey instead of beef, and I used whole eggs in place of the egg whites. Oh also I added a bit of bbq sauce to the ketchup and it gave it such a nice sweet flavor with a kick. For sides I made some of the box butter & herb mashed potatoes and microwave a bag of frozen veggies. It was delicious, satisfying, and best of all simple to make.
