For BETTER than Cracker Barrel meatloaf, substitute half of your ground beef with ground pork, or double your recipe with a pound of beef, a pound of pork, and double everything else. Leftover meatloaf makes awesome sandwiches!

What, no spices, herbs or garlic? Ketchup is not seasoning. Blech.

Can you explain grated frozen bisquits? I see you purchase a package of frozen bisquits that are ready for reheating and take 2 or 3 and pass them thru a cheese grater on the larger end. Is this correct?

Hi! Yes, that is correct. I will be sure to add a note to these instructions to clarify this. Thank you for your feedback! -Editors, AllFreeCopycatRecipes

THANK YOU WHOM ever broke this recipe down from all the other site that showed the 10 pound version. Jan in Mo. rating is a 10

The recipe doesn't tell you if you have to drain tomatoes or not. Seems like a lot of liquid for dry ingredients.

We did not drain the tomatoes, but we also had a lot of juice to drain from the pan. In the future, we would drain the can and will change the recipe to reflect this. Thank you for your comment!

This meatloaf made me drool just smelling it cook from across the hall. I'm not the biggest fan of beef, so I was surprised by how hungry this meatloaf made me!

I was pleasantly surprised by this meatloaf! It had a nice flavor and reminded me of my mother's home cooking. I would leave out the diced tomatoes next time I make it, and try using saltines instead of biscuits.
