    This meatloaf looks delicious! I love a good meatloaf sandwich. I love any meatloaf recipe that has CHILI SAUCE as an ingredient. I do have a question though; the 1 CUP OATMEAL, what kind of oatmeal should be used? I have packets of instant oatmeal. Cinnamon and sugar and maple syrup. Can those be used or should I use the NON-Instant oatmeal? I can't wait to make this. Great Friday night meal.

    I made this last week and it was delicious! I did have one problem. The meatloaf just fell apart when I went to serve it. We just had to scoop it out with a spoon. Any suggestions?

  10. Marita

    Just wondering if it is kid friendly with the chilli sauce?

  11. Shari giarraputo

    WOW...excellent meatloaf and my hubby, the gourmet chef, loved it, too! Personally, I will add mushrooms next time, but that's me. Quite perfect just the way it is!

  13. Walter

    Chili sauce? Is this anything like Thai sweet chili sauce? Also, never used oatmeal in meatloaf before. Would Panko bread crumbs work instead?

    1. Teresa Adkins

      How do I make Chili sauce?

    2. Chef in Training

      It comes in a bottle usually found next to the ketchup :) hope that helps!

    This meatloaf was awesome! Hubby liked it, too! Would add a little horseradish next time, but that is personal preferance.
