It was a tasty meatloaf. I thought the carrots were a nice addition. I used mild Italian sausage for the hot sausage and had to skim off the fat a few times as it cooked. The sauce was a bit too sweet for my taste. Next time I make it (and there definitely will be a next time} I think I will cut back a bit on the sugar and wait to put the sauce on the top until it is nearly cooked through and I have de-fatted the juices.
I only used 1/4 c. instead of 1/2 c. mustard in the topping. This is a delicious change for us!
Followed this to the letter--very easy & very Tasty. A pleasant change from ho-hum meatloaf. The zip from the hot sausage was a great addition & went well with the combo of flavors in the topping.
This was really good. I had some leftover sausage from spagetti lastnight so I removed the casings and added to this receipe.
Loved this recipe! I took a cue from another reviewer and used a muffin pan. We're trying to watch our calories, so I wanted to divide the servings in half. I put it in 12 muffin cups and cooked it for one hour, and it was YUMMY. We loved the sauce, but it makes a lot so next time I'll probably cut it in half to reduce the calories a little more. It was WONDERFUL, and a real keeper!
Skipped the carrots and used bread crumbs instead of the cracker crumbs. This was great stuff- made awesome sandwiches the next day.
This is really good. The sauce would be good on any meatloaf recipe. I used to make the Lipton onion soup meatloaf, but this beats the pants off it.
This was sooooooooooooooo good! I grew up on pressure cooker meatloaf w/ketchup.. then, for yrs, Frugal Gourmet sour cream meatloaf, but I really, really LOVE this one! Makes excellent next day sandwiches - mayon on one side, ketchup OR bbq sauce on the other, heat n eat!<br/><br/>ALL the yrs I grew up in So Cal, went to Dland & Knott's and never knew how good!
Scrumtious! I just added a little diced red pepper to the recipe and I grated the onion,carrot and a bit of garlic very finely. The recipe called for soda crackers but I only had Keebler Club crackers - I used the whole strip of one pack. The recipe also called for mustard - I used grain Dijon. My husband's comment: This is not meatloaf!...it's melt in your mouth pure pleasure. If you're looking for moistness, sweetness and spice - this is your meatloaf. There is only a small piece left and I'm looking forward to tasting it in a sandwich tomorrow.
