Top Review by ImPat

Twissis photo in the Aussie Swap inspired me to give this a go BUT I forgot to ask the DH to take the crockpot down from the top shelf before he went to bed for his day of sleep and by the time I realised it was going to be too late by the time he got up, so I resorted to the oven. I scaled it back to a 4 serve recipe and made in a loaf pan, baking at 175C for 30 minutes, drained off the fat (there was very little) and then added the sauce topping (a first in a meatloaf for me) and baked for a further 15 minutes (next time make this step 3 to 5 minutes) which made the sauce topping come out rather crusty and sweet but still was good. Thank you bmcnichol for a new adventure, for the Aussie 12 Days of Christmas Swap.
