Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Try using CHILI SAUCE instead of ketchup. Chili sauce "brightens" up much, much better than ketchup!! I use chili sauce in lots of things instead of ketchup.

I use home made chunky salsa instead of the ketchup then serve it with some melted pepper jack cheese on top, never anything left for meatloaf sandwiches!

A good starter type recipe, but very bland. So much else you can add to make it more flavorful.

try adding some chopped green peppers and a healthy squirt of mustard. Been making it this way for years.

haven't made this but it is exactly like my recipe!!!

What in the world is 667/1000 cup ketchup ???

2/3 cup
