I definitely like your recipe! Probably the biggest thing I liked was making smaller loaves instead of one big one...easy to personalize, I like sauce on top of mine but wife doesn't, problem solved!

Ok bud good to know. Didn't know you'd already tried it. I also like using the small load pans. Everyone loves having their own tiny meatloaf
