Classic Meatloaf is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rather bland I used this meatloaf recipe yesterday for the first time. I usually use saltine crackers but didn't have any so I tried oats. The meatloaf held together well. The cooking time was correct. The taste was bland for our preference. I would use oats again, but change the other ingredients. Again this is our preference and no reflection on using oats vs. saltines. Oats are a healthier option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter likes this most I've been using same recipe for years except I put a sauce on top made of ketchup, little bit of mustard and brown sugar, dang, the topping makes it sooo savory and delicious. Half cup of catsup, a squirt of mustard and about a qrtr cup of brown sugar (more or less to your taste) no wonder my picky eating daughter loves it! (She only eats chicken most of time) u gotta try it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just great This is the first thing I learned to make back when I was only 12 yrs old. I lost the recipe for a long time. Am so glad I found it again. I can't seem to find it on the back of your boxes anymore. Should put it back on there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our family favorite! Found this recipe over ten years ago and it's our favorite meatloaf! Using ground turkey, we up the oats to 1 cup, lightly pulsed in a food processor, and substitute medium heat salsa for the ketchup...mmm-mmm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Recipe! I've been using this recipe for over 10 years. Sometimes I modify it, add more veggies or different spices, but mostly use it as is. It always gets eaten up by my family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BEST It was great when I was a kid and it's great now that I am middle aged (70)! Make two at a time, freeze one...nearly idiot proof...I need that!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It's not what we used to eat back in the 60's/70's. What's missing besides tomato paste?
