Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kind of bland I wanted to love this meatloaf but I thought it was kind of bland compared to the meatloafs I usually make. I probably wouldn't make it again. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING Meatloaf! Let me start by saying that 3 of us finished the entire meatloaf at one setting. Guess what, we don't even like mushrooms! HA! This meatloaf is full of flavor and delicious. I needed a quick meal and this was last minute so I made it in two mini loaf pans to cook faster. In a hurry I forgot the quick oats. It probably would have held together a bit better with the oats but no one missed them. We had this again later in the week using ground turkey which was totally different but also good.
