Meat loaf

  1. Hubby is making meat loaf for supper tonight. He likes his with gravy, so that's how he always makes it. I prefer tomato sauce on mine, so I make it that way when I cook. I make mashed potatoes with it, and put the tomato sauce on the potatoes. He says he doesn't know any one else that makes it with tomato sauce. So tell me how you guys like your meatloaf.

    I'm making it tonight and I mix a little gravy powder AND a little tomato sauce into the meat and then make some gravy to pour over it. YUM

    I mix together ketchup, brown sugar and worcestshire sauce, and spread it over the top. YUM!

    I just made meatloaf Sunday, and all leftovers were gone by Tuesday. Hubby loves meatloaf.

    I use ketchup, mustard and brown sugar on the top of mine. Sometimes I put a hunk of colby cheese in the middle of my meatloaf. Nothing like melted cheese in the middle!

    Depends on our mood.

    Sometimes I'll make it the traditional way. Sometimes I'll put poultry seasoning in there for a little zing, and sometimes I'll spice it up a whole lot by adding a jar of salsa and some garlic powder. When I do the last one, though, rice is on the side instead of taters.

    i buy pre mixed meat loaf... then just pop it in oven to cook and smother it with tomatoe sause.

    I dont like making it.... Too messy, and takes forever to get "meat grease" off my hands... lol

    I have a great meatloaf recipe which calls for a topping made out of the following: tomato sauce, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, and worcestershire sauce. It is fabulous! I also add ketchup on my own portion. DH hates ketchup, but loves this meatloaf.

    It depends on my mood.
    My favorite is covered with tomato soup and served with baked potatoes, the boys prefer brown gravy and mashed potatoes, husband doesn't care as long as theres lots of it.

    I was thinking about making it for dinner, we've got 30# of hamburger sitting in the frig that needs to be split, wrapped & frozen...think I'll drag my sick self out to the kitchen and teach the boys to make meatloaf...while I'm at it think I'll do some instructing in the safe handling of raw meat.

    Tomato sauce here too. Who would ruin a perfectly good meatloaf with gravy?
