There is not much zing to this recipe, in my opinion. I add 1 large clove garlic chopped finely, and a level tsp of thyme (unless pork is added). To my family’s taste, the garlic and thyme enhance the basic meatloaf flavour. We also mix it very thoroughly with our hands till the fat begins to stick to the hands. Meatloaf is then more solid and slices better.
Yeah, that food was off the chain and I’ll make it again.
This makes a good basic meat loaf, but it needs some spicing up. The way it is, it is kind of bland.
I would add 1/2 to 1 cup of seasoned tomato sauce for the liquid, add beaten egg and to this mixture stir in 1 envelope of Lipton Dry Onion Soup Mix and 1 clove minced garlic. Add to this 1 to 1-1/2 cups of Quick Cooking Oats. Shape in oblong baking dish and crisscross top with ketchup. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Yummy with seasoned mashed potatoes!
