    I love this recipe and when I make meat loaf it is the recipe I use. I do use ground pork as well think it lightens it up. The glaze is just the right amount of extra seasoning and sweetness. I use to love to see Martha's mother in her show and that is when I first make her meat loaf. Make extra for best sandwich ever next day.

    I request this every February for my birthday meal. Served with mashed potatoes, sauteed garlic green beans and a side salad. There is never any leftovers but if lucky the recipe will have been doubled so I can take some home.

    I made this meatloaf and it was very tasty. It was tender and moist, though crumbly. I should have increased the amount of egg but failed to see that only one egg was called for with so much meat. I will definitely make this recipe again but with 2 or 3 eggs and more breadcrumbs as needed and will try it "free form" next time, not using the loaf pan, so the yummy sauce coats more of the meatloaf. Also, instead of parchment on the cookie sheet beneath the rack go with foil instead, easy clean

    This meatloaf is a favorite in our house. In my version, I dice the vegetables and sautée them until they are well- cooked and on the soft side, to sweeten them and cut the pungency of the onion. I confess I also leave out the garlic!

    This recipe was superb! The 2nd time preparing it I changed the recipe somewhat by omitting garlic, brown sugar, and the dry mustard. I used Newman basil and tomato sauce instead of ketchup. Delicious with all the other ingredients and will prepare it again and again.

    I would not use the glaze next time I make this - it's far too sweet for us, Oh! and watch the salt - Martha has a tendency to use too much.

    This is the best meatloaf I have ever tasted/made. A true American classic.

    In the above review I misspelled Mrs. Kostyra's name. Sorry for the error.

    Mrs. Koystra's meatloaf has become our family favorite. The addition of chopped vegetables makes a flavorful and moist loaf. My grandchildren love it and they are getting a good serving of veggies unbeknownst to them! Thanks Martha for sharing your Mom's recipe!
