Could I use a 1/3 of a cup of tomato soup for the topping instead of ketchup? The nutrients seem to be lower for potassium and sodium. Dietitian comment: Yes this change will decrease sodium and potassium but not if you use undiluted condensed tomato soup[INVALID]it is 180 mg higher in potassium for 1/3 cup.

This was very good. Great flavor and came out very moist. Smelled great when mixing the ingredients and is very easy to make. I made them along with the mashed cauliflower. Will definitely make again :)

My husband loved this. We did agree however, that the next time I make it, I am going to add 1-2 tablespoons of the sauce, right into the meat itself, then spread the rest on top of the meat as instructed in the directions. Also, I used Ground Round. We did not buy it at the grocery store, we went to the butcher shop and bought it. Found out it has a maximum of 5% fat. This made an incredible meatloaf. It was not dry. It was not greasy. It was awesome. I suggest Ground Round for this meal. I also didn't have saltines, so I used Back To Nature Classic Round Crackers. They are 100% natural and really good. This is definitely a keeper.

I made this meatloaf, but I omitted the crackers. In place of crackers, I used several pieces of white bread. I omitted the toppings. It turned out just fine.

can you use low sodium RITZ crakers ??? Dietitian comment: Yes you can make the substitution and the sodium, potassium and phosphorus is even lower.

I figure no salt catsup would be better than catsup with salt.

The Meatloaf was very good and we loved the sauce for the top! I added some extra seasonings and diced a garlic to put in it. I am new to this with and I amin late stage 3 and so I thought I would try a few things and learn as much as I could before my dr appt in 2 weeks. We did this on the grill and it was delicious and my hubby loved it also and said he would like to have it again. Thank you for the wonderful recipes and this site has so much info!

I made this meatloaf as a "loaf" and didn't care for it that much, but I used my cupcake holder and it was delicious. Only two at a time, have to watch my husbands potassium and phosphorus, you know. I am going to try it in my crock-pot just to see have it tastes.

I noticed that this calls for brown sugar. On our food list brown sugar is on the avoid list. Why? Moderator Comment: Brown sugar contains molasses, a source of potassium. 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar sontains 146 mg potassium whereas white sugar has only 2 mg. You can still use brown sugar. The most important thing is the potassium content of the final product.

Love this meat loaf. We make this once a week. We use ground turkey instead of ground beef and use Egg beaters for the 'egg' portion. Very tasty, expecially with the sauch topping.

Read the label for a jar of mustard ingredients and see what it says. Moderator: 1 teaspoon of mustard has only 7 mg potassium. It may be substituted in this recipe if desired.

very moist meatloaf. Did not have brown sugar, still a little to sweet for my taste. Still very good.

I am so happy to see a recipe that I can use catsup, as I received a renal diet which said to not use tomatoes and tomato sauce, and i assumed this also met catsup. Does this mean that I can also use a little on a burger?

We have a 13 year old with a failing kidney. It is a struggle to find recipes the whole family enjoys. Unfortunately, our 13 yr old did not care for this, but three other family members (including me!) liked this meatloaf a lot. So I would recommend giving this one a try. We used no salt added catsup.

I mixed all ingred. in a bowl before reading the directions and it tasted great and moist. Made the topping and used just a little on top. My family loved it.

Awesome recipe! One change could be a bit more brown sugar for the topping. I think using a little less than 1/4 cup makes the sauce amazing. I also baked this in mini loaves. 1/4 of the meat per loaf.
