    Your calorie count is off. Chia- (1T/12g)...and you put 5g in instead of 60g. This adds 46 calories per serving. - 5/20/13

    I thought this was good. I baked it the night before. It could use more seasonings. I added cumin and garlic. I replaced some of the bread crumbs with ground flax seed. I also used ground chicken because it was on sale. I would make it again, spice it up a bit
    90 min was good

    This was wonderful! Absolutely the most delicious meatloaf I have ever had! I added about a cup of chopped bell pepper as well and it was a hit! - 9/8/13

    Made as directed but next time will add more seasonings. Only cooked for 1 hour, took off cover, then 10 minutes and was done. Always use a flat pan with lid for meatloaf as easy to serve from but still think 90 minutes would be bit much. - 1/17/18

    I'm on low carb, so I will try it with no lentils, and substitute almond meal for the bread crumbs. - 5/21/17
