How do you generally make yours? I make mine like this without the ketchup and the peppers. I think peppers take over most any dish when used incorrectly so to be safe, I don't use them other than to cut them up and eat them raw. I usually add them to the dinner table. But I would also like a new receipe for meatloaf. Sometimes I add some mushrooms too, just to be a tad different from last time I made it LOL so I am an=xious to hear your receipe. :lol: :banana: :bigthumb:

IMO any food that has football terms mixed into it, is automatically better.

I put a ketchup mixture on top that has a little dried mustard and brown sugar, but I don't use ketchup in it, green peppers, or celery. I also add onion powder, basil, and fresh snipped parsley to the meat mixture.

I do the same but use onion...no pepper or celery. I also add chili powder for a little zip.

On top I use ketsup, brown sugar, and a spicy brown mustard all mixed together. I have also made this in the microwave believe it or not and it turns out really well....never dry. I cook it at 50% power. I also have a turntable in my microwave. I would think you'd need to turn it several times during cooking otherwise. Hope this helps!

Sounds great Pam thanks, I use celery in everything, it is awesome in a green salad, so are radishes!
