    This recipe was really good, I have made it several times, when I bake it in a loaf pan I make a little gully down the middle and put my favorite veg in such as asparagus spear and then cover it back up, when you slice it looks nice with the aspargus in the middle and tastes great too. - 5/24/09

    I followed the directions exactly and that is how I am rating it. Wonderful loaf and 8 points+ for WW. I just add a baked potato (3 pts+) or instant mashed potatoes (2 pts+ per serving) and veggies! 10-11 pts for a complete meal! Since the first time, I have made it several more times, <3 it! - 2/13/11

    Wonderful! I have always hated meatloaf, but decided to try this recipe anyway. However, I used onion salt instead of fresh onion. I loved it! - 6/13/08

  • I JUST made this for Sunday dinner and my family LOVED it! It was not as traditional as my mom's meatloaf, but it certainly was a lot healthier. I changed it just a wee bit---I used the low sodium box of dressing. YUMMY! I will definitely make this again soon! - 1/27/13

  • I have always used "eggs" when I make meatloaf BUT I have egg whites in the frig so this time I will cut some calories and a bit of cholesterol but using the whites... how simple! - 12/15/11

  • DELICIOUS!! I added finely chopped onion, celry and a little bit of red pepper for colour. Just be careful not to add too much, otherwise your loaf will be very moist and won't slice very well. - 10/27/11

  • This recipe was awesome! The meatloaf was moist and flavorful. My step-daughter loved it and she normally doesn't like meatloaf. The next day, my husband grilled some of the leftovers and has stated that he needs me to cook this meatloaf once a week. - 8/22/11

  • Wow. I usually dislike meatloaf. But I had some ground beef and didn't know what to do with it besides the few same things I usually do. I found this recipe and I will make it again and again. Absolutely delicious. I used a greek dressing though - it was what I had on hand. - 7/17/11

    I loved this. I used mushrooms and zucchini instead of onions. I added basil. I sauted the veggies in beef broth. I used tomato sauce and brown sugar because we were out of ketchup. I eliminated the water and made the mixture into burgers to save cooking time. But the idea was yours. - 2/24/11
