    I must say that I really don't care for meatloaf, but just by looking at this recipe, I knew I'd like this. It's quite an extraordinary meatloaf. So much more flavor and much more "exciting" than traditional meatloaf. I used 1 1/2 lbs ground sirloin and 1/2 lb ground pork. I made 2 smaller, flatter loaves for faster cooking. That glaze is super yummy! This recipe is a keeper! It's great for those who love meatloaf AND for those who don't! Thanx for possting.

    Awesome flavours. I've never used apple in my meatloaf but it went very nicely. Once mixed I found the mixture abit too wet so I added some breadcrumbs also. Used ground dried herbs (1/2 of what fresh asked for) & it tasted great for us. I didn't have frozen concentrate apple juice so I substituted regular juice & also added some cornstartch to thicken it. Nice unique variation to a common meal, thanks for sharing.

    This was a great meatloaf even with the changes I made to make it healither for the Make It Healthier game. I used lean ground turkey, 3 egg whites and one whole egg, whole wheat lite bread, and left out the salt all together. I made these in muffin tins since my mother and I would never be able to finish a whole meatloaf on our own, I stuck the leftover muffins in the freezer for a fantastic lunch or dinner in a flash. The only problem I had was that the meatloaf was a tad bit dry, which is because I used a lot leaner meat and less egg I think, but this was still an excellent dinner!!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
