    The meatloaf itself was very tasty and sliced very neatly, however the sauce was overly sweet which detracted from the overall dish and overwhelmed the ginger flavour. Next time I will cut the sugar in half and see how we go.  -  14 Sep 2009

    Really nice. I put in half the sugar as suggested below but will put in even less next time as it was still a little sweet. Very easy and flavoursome.  -  05 Feb 2013

    I know I'm just another in a long line of reviewers, but I enjoyed this recipe just as much as everyone else! I didn't read through all the reviews, but from most of them I gathered modifications, which added up to a winning recipe! - I only used 1/4 cup of brown sugar. - I added 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce to the ketchup/brown sugar mix. - I used 1/2 cup of milk and 1 egg. - I added 2 cloves of garlic to the meat mixture. Plus, I love celery, so I chopped up some of that and added it in. Finally, I used a cup of season bread crumbs instead of the crackers. Being impatient and hungry, I followed another user's idea and made mini-loves in my muffin pan. I put the ketchup/brown sugar sauce on bottom, cooked for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, then spooned the rest of the sauce on top and cooked another 15. This was so delicious, I can't wait to make it again - this time in actual loaf form. Yum yum!  -  13 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
