    Thank you for the recipes you include on your site!

  • Melanie says:

    I would love this cookbook, and would just like to say thanks for all of the great ideas!!!

  • Rachel says:

    Is it just me, or are the directions out of order???? I am a little confused!

  • Kalla says:

    Thanks! That sounds so yummy and flavorful (my husband has a problem with other meatloaves I’ve made not having enough flavor) 🙂 Men!? 🙂

  • Brittan says:

    You amaze me! You are going to cook 25 meals, with 3 small children around AND you’re going to blog the whole thing! You need a medal! Or at least a cookie! 🙂

  • angie b says:

    Thanks for the recipe. It sounds yummy.

  • Julie says:

    I have another tip for cooked meatloaf. Let it cool completely in the refrigerator after baking and slice (easier to slice and cleaner slices when cold), then freeze. You can either re-heat the entire meatloaf for a meal or pull out slices for sandwiches and such.

  • Becky says:

    That looks so yummy! We are definately going to have to try it!

  • Tiffany says:

    I love meatloaf! Thanks for sharing the tip on mixing it uncooked then putting it in the freezer. I love that idea for when I buy large amount of meat, and had plan on putting it in the freezer for later. By mixing it before, it will save me time for a later meal!

  • Jill says:

    I curious to know about the “no re-freezing” thing. Why can you not refreeze meat after mixing into meatloaf, before cooking?

  • Yolanda says:

    This recipe looks fantastic. Thank you for sharing!

  • Elisa says:

    I was just thinking about what to make for dinner and now I know! This looks soooo yummy! And I really dislike meatloaf!! I have been FOREVER searching for a meatloaf I like and have only found one I kind of like. Hopefully this will be IT and my search will be over! 🙂 Thanks for posting!

  • Jess says:

    We make something very similar but make it into mini meatloaves. I shape them into cupcake size meatballs and bake them in a muffin pan. I freeze them uncooked (without the sauce as you mentioned). Thaw, put the sauce on top, and bake. It’s one of the most efficient, kid-pleasing meals in my recipe box.

  • Jennifer M. says:

    Would this recipe work well with ground chicken rather than beef?

  • Laura says:

    Oh, I will have to try this recipe! I like the cupcake-sized meatloaves, Jess. It will be nice to have a yummy meatloaf to pull out of the freezer on those crazy days when it doesn’t seem like dinner will come together. Thanks!

  • Saver Queen says:

    Looks great – good comfort food for this time of year. I’m going to try this – thanks!

  • Marla says:

    Looks good! We will have to try this one.

    Actually you can thaw and then refreeze raw meat. As long as you thaw it in the fridge. Laura @ did a post about it. Complete with links to the info.

  • Julie Stewart says:

    I’m a little slow….and a newbie at this, do you freeze them right in the pan? Thanks so much!

  • cwaltz says:

    I was wondering if you were going to share this recipe. My family loves cheeseburger so the idea of cheeseburger meatloaf is intriguing. Plus I think that this might be harder for them to comandeer like they do chili before it makes it into the freezer. Now that my oldest is a teen I’d swear I gave birth to a locust rather than a child. Between him, his father and the twelve year old you’d swear I was starving them.


  • Andrea says:

    I am adding this to my menu for next month’s freezer cooking day. My husband loves meatloaf, and I detest it, but this looks good. Can’t wait to try it!

  • janet says:

    your food looks so yummy!

  • Melanie says:

    Like another commenter, I don’t usually like meatloaf, so I’m constantly trying new recipes. I was just about to do another search, when this post popped up in my reader! The ground beef was thawed, so my boys helped me mix it up and it’s sitting in the fridge until closer to dinner time when I’ll cook it. Cant’ wait to try it later today!

  • Holly says:

    A solution to your not enough bowls problem…I prefer to mix my meatloaf in a storage size ziploc bag- it works perfectly, i just add all my ingredients and then squish it until it is well mixed up and then it goes into the pan- works great everytime!

  • Mariah says:

    On your cheeseburger meatloaf recipe, one of the ingredients states “1/2 dry mustard”. Is that 1/2 tsp? Dry mustard is ground mustard, right?

  • Ooo…meatloaf is on the menu for next week; I’ll have to try this one (especially since I already have the ingredients!). Thanks for sharing.

  • pizzamom says:

    Thanks for your great recipe for butterhorn rolls. I’m anxious to give it a try. I also would love to win one of Erin’s cookbooks. Thank you!

  • pizzamom says:

    I am already a subscriber, but I would be thrilled to win one of Erin’s cookbooks. Thanks so much for your great blog!

  • Jana says:

    We had meatloaf on the menu for last night anyway, but I decided to try this one since I am not a fan of the recipe I had used before. I thought I hated meatloaf, but I loved this! It was very flavorful and super moist. We left off the sauce on top (didn’t use any kind) and I thought it was just fine without. Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Brooke says:

    Cooked the meatloaf tonight and it was a hit with the family. Thanks!!!!

  • Jennifer says:

    Made it last night and everyone gobbled it up! I also do the cupcake style meatballs because half of the family doesn’t like sauce on top (hard to believe – that’s my favorite part!!). I think I might sprinkle extra cheese on top of those for extra moisture. And what a great idea to freeze them so you can pull them out last minute! THANK YOU!!

  • Lauren says:

    I do a meatloaf with local beef, lots of whole wheat bread, pureed zucchini, eggs and Cheez-Its.

  • Cindy says:

    My 10 year old son and I made the Cheeseburger Meatloaf for dinner last night and it was a big hit! The flavor was great and he had alot of fun mixing it up. We had just enough left over for a meatloaf sandwich today. I will definately try to make some for the freezer.

  • We loved it! I doubled it, and instead of chili or BBQ sauce, I made my own: about a cup and a half of ketchup, around 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, a teaspoon of liquid smoke, and a teaspoon of garlic powder. I didn’t measure, just mixed until I thought I had enough. Even the almost 3 year old scarfed hers down!

  • Joy says:

    I made this & my husband said it was the best meatloaf he ever had! I doubled the recipe & froze the leftovers in slices.
