This meatloaf recipe has changed how I feel about meat loaf. My friend Alysun promised that if I’d give meatloaf one more shot she would give me the best recipe ever and now we are sharing it with all of you!
I HATED meatloaf growing up. Ew, I can still taste it. It was too grainy. That’s why I don’t love ground beef. It’s so weird in texture. This meatloaf is different. It’s so incredibly moist and the glaze… oh sweet deliciousness. It’s fantastic. Now, this was my first real attempt at a meatloaf so I obviously cooked it in too big a loaf pan so they are a little too flat, but now I know better.
Thanks Alysun for the recipe! We loved it!
