These were very easy to make although like the other reviews, they were very bland. I would make them again, but would have to improve the taste - somehow! Shame, because meatloaf is always a family favourite.

Don't think this recipe was really tested at all!

I made these they were delicious I did add more Worcestershire sauce than the receipe suggested, I also added a few dashes of tabasco sauce.
Like Belkey I too had difficulty getting them out of the ramekins, will make them again but maybe put more oil around the ramekin. Mine certainly didnt look like the picture either!

I tried these and to be honest was not impressed. They did not turn out of the ramekins well, so looked like a splodgey mess and were also a little bland. Will not be doing again.
