Good meatloaf! Sugar added to taste but not necessary if diabetic. A little mustard in sauce is tasty. I don't use eggs in mix. I simply pour a little tomato sauce in mix to hold it together. Been doing this over 50 years.

This was really tasty and you can change it up so easy. The only change I made was ditching the bread crumbs and using seasoned croutons, crushed them in a blender and added them instead. It was fantastic. I will make this again and when in the mood for a brown gravy type of meatloaf I'll just omit the tomato sauce and sugar.

I believe this recipe is supposed to be 2 pounds ground meat. I used 1 pound beef, 1 pound pork. Delicious!!!!

once again, the recipe calls for SUGAR----- I am pre-diabetic, well, I guess that essentially means diabetic---so WHY the SUGAR??--I've never added sugar to a meatloaf----I'm 65--my Mom and Grandma never did either--why the sugar?
sweet home meatloaf,
