    I make this meatloaf all the time but I use about 1/2 a med . onion instead of the onion soup . and I use 2 eggs and milk skim as needed but other wise is the same . I often use barbeque sause in place of catsup also. My family loves it. - 3/14/09

    My meat loaf came out a little soupy -- but I only had 1 lb beef, not 1-1/2. Next time I'm going to try adding everything but the milk together, then adding only enough milk to moisten. - 2/12/09

    If you are reducing the meat, you do need to reduce the milk and ketchup to compensate.
