  1. This makes me ready for meat loaf! Your family eats very well if you feed them all these things that you post!

    Thank you for your visits and comments to my blog, Nee! Today is stitch-removal day!:-)

    1. Hi Nellie , we had this meatloaf for dinner last Thursday evening , I'm a stay at home mom , I do a lot of cooking , gardening and I truly loves cooking . thanks for stopping by :).

  2. Dear Nee, what a terrific idea. I have not made meatloaf in a long time. Now I have a reason to try your delicious recipe. I love the brown sugar that you add in. Meatlaof was always a staple in my house. My mother used to serve meatloaf with mashed potatoes and string beans. Then, if there was any leftover, we would have it cold in a sandwich the next day for lunch! Thanks for sharing...Blessings, Dottie :)

    1. Hi Dottie , we do the same if there is any left overs , there are so many different ways to make meatloaf. Having to cook dinner everyday , you have to put a twist on things , thanks for stopping b :).

  3. I don't think I've ever had a brown sugar glaze on a meat loaf. Terrific idea! Love this - thanks so much.

  4. Hi John , have to think off different twists to foods I prepare so my kids won't get bored , thanks for stopping by :)

  5. Oh boy Nee, I bet the kids loved this one! Meat loaf is so versatile and it's always a good way to "sneak" some nutrition in too. I put applesauce in my meat loaf sometimes, actually I've put a lot of unusual things in meat loaf now that I think of it, lol...

    Thanks for sharing, Nee...I'm so glad you and the kids enjoyed the post today. I'll be looking forward to those apples when the girls make them, lol...
