Easy, peasy and cheesy! We love this dish so much, especially with a good salad aside and nice cold dessert after. It makes the perfect meal! Give it a shot, you won’t regret it.


This was absolutely the best meatloaf I have ever made, or had for that matter, in my life. I highly recommend it. The savory sweet glaze is fantastic! My whole crew normally puts ketchup on everything. Not one of them reached for it!! Amazing!

I’ve always found meat loaf bland and a hard sell at my dinner table, until I found this recipe. It’s been my stand-by for a couple of years now. Thanks Matt!

For years I have tried different meatloaf recipes but none of them were flavorful enough or held together. My search is over! So simple and so delicious with very few ingredients. I was leery of adding cheese but it is a nice subtle flavor addition. Thanks for a new family favorite.

I used two pounds of hamburger, and left out the carrots and the cheese. It was awesome. I have used the same meatloaf recipe for years, but this may be my new go-to recipe. The loaf held together beautifully, no crumbling. And the sauce was fantastic. I highly recommend this recipe!

I used a pound of meat instead of the 1 1/2 pounds called kept everything the same other than the bread it still turned out great! Glaze on top was perfect texture!

This was really tasty and the texture was perfect. Didn’t crumble or fall apart at all, and the glaze has a wonderful flavor. I made mine into mini meatloafs, which my husband and children loved. Will be making again!
