#1 most viewed recipe from my blog. That pretty much confirms that meatloaf is still a popular main dish. Meatloaf isn't easy to photograph. It's a little homely, if you ask me. Until you take a look at the glaze on this version...
What makes this particular meatloaf recipe so special are a few key things-- I use a combination of ground beef, ground pork and ground veal. (I have no idea if this would taste as good using ground turkey. I've never tried it.) For those of you who make the best Italian meatballs...you know exactly what I'm talking about! I cook the onion and garlic, just until softened. I also use fresh marjoram and thyme. Last, but not least, I make my own bread crumbs with my food processor and then whisk together fresh eggs, milk, hot sauce and Dijon mustard. The star of the show is the glaze. Oh, the glaze! It's so simple-- ketchup, brown sugar and cider vinegar. While the meatloaf is cooking, your kitchen will be filled with a savory aroma that will make the men in your house start to ask when dinner is ready. I'm speaking from personal experience.
