Delicious meatloaf served hot or cold in sandwiches. I used my small food processor to whiz the bread and chop the onion. Instead of a loaf pan, I used a rack covered in foil paper with vents cut in the foil. Then I placed the shaped meatloaf on top of the rack and placed it in a roasting pan with a little bit of water in the bottom. I think this meatloaf would be good with strips of bacon on top during baking too. Leftovers made great sandwiches; two pieces of bread buttered on the outside, a slice of meatloaf and a slice of cheese on the inside, and grilled like a grilled cheese sandwich.
Very good meatloaf. It holds together well and has very good flavor. The single drawback is that it creates a lot of extra liquid while baking. I had to drain off a lot of it and continue baking for an extra 20 mins to dry it enough to serve. The bread vanishes as an individual ingredient but it keeps the inside of the loaf very moist (in a good way)and what looks like a lot of onion provided good flavor when fully cooked. All in all very tasty, just allow for extra baking time in case you need it.
