Best Ever Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Brian Holley

I know there are plenty of recipes for meatloaf here on Zaar, but, until you try this one you won't know what you are missing.The use of ginger and cinnamon give a lift to the meat. Serve with a sauce of mushrooms in soy sauce and cream. Also makes great sandwich filling.

Another one of your winners, Brian! As I can't eat meatloaf with tomato in it and wanted something tastier than boring German False Hare, I found this one and adapted it a bit to my needs. I. e. instead of onion I used shallot and instead of garlic I used ramsons, and the sauce I made was of oyster mushrooms and soy cream. But I don't think that it affected the end result too much - this is the best meatloaf I've ever eaten!! Thanks so much for posting!
