As a kid, I loved my Grandma's meatloaf but quickly learned that not all meatloaf is created the same - others were dry, musty smelling, or had large pieces of things I didn't like (onions or peppers for instance). I started with my Grandma's recipe and tweaked it with my kids giving reviews. I learned that musty smell was from too much sage so be careful with that. The real secrets here though are the shape and size - cake shaped rather than loaf shaped allows the center to cook without overcooking or drying the outer area; and, mincing the onions so they are not so visible after cooking (a good trick for all recipes when dealing with kids). Feel free to add your own spicing touches - so long as you keep the shape and the ketchup glaze this recipe is guaranteed to stay moist and never need a sauce!
