My go to recipe. I have had BHG cookbook for 35 years. Its very well loved.
It was really good!
Tastes like “home” my mom passed away when I was 19. I was craving her meatloaf and searched through her recipes and cookbooks and came up with nothing. Then out of the blue, I looked in my very own bhg cookbook and found it! I cried after that first bite!
Awesome recipe! My favorite meat loaf! Thank you
My family has used this recipe since I was a child. When I got married my Mom gave me the Better Homes & Garden cookbook with this recipe. That was over 40 years ago and now you can barely read the recipe because it is covered in all of the things I spilled on it while making this meatloaf. One friend of mine asks me to make this for hi m at least once a month. He claims it's the best he has ever eaten. He even asked me to make it for his mother and father. Simple, easy and delicious.
Bought new Better Homes and Garden paperback cookbook. Meatloaf recipe not in there. Had to go online to look for it. Very disappointed ! It's my go to one. My dad even has this recipe.
I've been making this recipe for over 30 years. It used to be in the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book but somewhere along the line, they removed it! It is the one meat load recipe that makes people say, "Wow! This is MEAT LOAF???" Even people who swear that they hate meat loaf love this recipe (I've battle tested it on some hard-core nay sayers). One thing - the nutrition information has to be wrong. It says 225 kcal per serving. There's no way this stuff has 225,000 calories in a serving! I found other on-line versions of this recipe that quote the calories as 610 per serving which is much more believable - about the same as a big ol' hamburger. I use 93/7 ground beef for mine as it cuts the fat content way down
It came out delicious! I made it for the whole family, I had some leftover quinoa from yesterdays lunch and added it. But it was really good! We enjoyed it..I served it with a salad and that was it. Amazing!
This is the favorite meat loaf of all my guests. Don't stop here though. All BUG recipes are yummy. Cheesecake, stuffed peppers, lasagne, stuffed pork chops, Apple pie are a few of my go tos.
I have been making this meatloaf since I was 10 years old, I am now 75! The recipe has been passed on many many times and still gets raves to this day. Often I mix the meat with pork and beef and to the sauce add 1/4 t nutmeg. Absolutely delicious!
I found this recipe years ago (2010, to be exact), when I bought BHG's "Our Best Recipes" cookbook. Have made it many times. I was prompted to write this review today after making this meatloaf last night for my husband and me. My husband just raved about it and commented that it is my "best meatloaf recipe, by far." I have made it my own by using a combination of 93% lean ground beef and ground pork (1lb. beef, 1/2lb. pork), 2 cups of day-old French bread crumbs (more like cubes, really), adding 1/2 cup shredded carrot along with the onion and parsley, and using crushed, dried oregano - no sage or basil. It is simply amazing. Company worthy! Today we made meatloaf sandwiches with the leftovers. We used bread from the same French loaf, buttered and pan toasted each slice; put a thin slice of yellow onion on each sandwich along with mayo and crisp iceberg lettuce. Just delicious. You have to try this meatloaf recipe!
First time making meatloaf ever. This recipe turned out great. I made a few adjustments according to my taste preferences. Used 1/2 # Italian Sausage, Italian seasoning, 1 small onion, and Worcestershire Sauce in both the meat mixture and the topping sauce. This meatloaf was reported as being the best thing I've ever made.
I also have made this recipe for more than 20 years! We love it! I think the sage is what sets it off, gives it such a depth of flavor. One thing I alternate is oats for dry bread crumbs. I always have oats on hand I Iike the added nutrients in the oats.
I have been making this recipe for years!! Everyone that has ever had some just LOVES it....and begs for the recipe. It is a must have recipe for every household.
