"Tasty! This is not your average meatloaf. I would make extra sauce for the top and save some to add towards the end of the cooking time since the sauce seems to soak into the meat."

"I'm always looking for a good meatloaf recipe and this one is really good. My husband asked what the secret sauce was on top! I used cilantro instead of parsley."
