    I added a teaspoon of Wholegrain Mustard and used Coffee and Chicory Essence in lieu of the Instant Coffee  -  22 Feb 2016


    Altered ingredient amounts. I didn't add the tomato sauce as my children are very sensitive to food colouring additives and so I used Italian tomato paste. I doubled the wine so I could get a better nights sleep, leaving out the worcestershire sauce - as I tend to avoid UK-related things these days......  -  27 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Used different ingredients. Instead of plain sausagement, I add italian flavoured sausages. Split skins and squeeze out sausage meat. I also grate in 1 apple and 1 carrot to the meat loaf mix. Very yummy meatloaf.  -  01 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
