RATINGS & REVIEWS


Prize-Winning Meatloaf is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My meatloaf recipe for 50 years! I began making this recipe in 1966--- it came right off the Quaker Oats cylinder container. My addition to it is that I lay 3 or 4 slices of bacon on the top.You usually cannot go wrong by adding bacon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Al time favorite meatloaf This has been my go to recipe for over 45 years. Back then it included green peppers and tomato sauce. Now those are optional, but I stick with tried and true!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite meatloaf (with exception) The origional receipt is good, but I didn't have tomato juice one time so I subsituted V8 juice. It is all I use now.
