Candace's Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Chef on the coast

I created this meatloaf after DH informed me he wasn't a meatloaf fan. The whole family really likes this recipe. It freezes well - freeze uncooked. We think it has the perfect blend of flavors and I like the leftovers for lunch the next day. If there are leftovers. :)

I was impressed with how well it sliced and it tastes really good. I made a few minor changes: used ground venison instead of beef, used two eggs, used a heaping tablespoonful of dried parsley plus a teaspoon of dried winter savory, and used 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt and no regular salt. It cooked perfectly to 170 degrees in 1-1/2 hrs in a large loaf pan in my toaster oven. I did glaze it for the last 20 minutes with 1/2 cup catsup, 1/3 cup maple syrup, and a tablespoon of grainy mustard mixed together. I made sure to rest it before cutting and it sliced like a dream. Served it with microwave-baked Yukon Gold potatoes with a dab of butter, and sauteed kale with garlic. I don't think my changes had much effect on the recipe, they were just minor enhancements that worked well. So good, thank you.
