This sounds like a good, basic meatloaf recipe. Like most dishes, this can easily be customized to suit personal taste. Sage and ground mustard would be good additions to this recipe. When I make meatloaf, I like to use Worcestershire sauce, instead of soy sauce. A delicious topping for a meatloaf is barbecue sauce.

I've been looking for a classic meatloaf recipe for awhile now, and this looks perfect!

I meant one half to two thirds ketchup. Sorry I did not do a good job of proofreading before posting.

My favorite topping after it is almost finished (about 10 mins. before) is to mix ahead of time while the loaf is cooking, one half cup brown sugar (light or dark, whatever you have) with about one half to three thirds cups ketchup and whisk and let the acid from the ketchup break down the sugar. Pull the loaf out, baste and put back in the oven for the last ten minutes.

Is basically what I make at home, except I use V-8 Vegetable Juice instead of the -catsup. Bake and then I take out and add V-8 to the top and put back in for around ten minutes.

I've made a similar recipe for years. If no oats, no prob. just use crushed crackers and ommit the salt or use coarse breadcrumbs. Throw in some chopped green pepper ( bout 1/2 cup ). Want something extra? Layer half the mix in pan, add a layer of cheese, then the rest of the mix and bake as sugested.

I worked in a family restaurant for years and made the meatloaf every week for some of those years. This recipe is very close except we didn't use worcestershire sauce or garlic. It wasn't a written recipe, it was handed down from manager to manager so I am not sure about the exact measurements. We always used beef. This of course, is before I became a vegetarian.
