Made for Fall '09 PAC. Nice flavor. Held together well making it so nice to slice. I really enjoyed the ketchup glace as it enhanced the taste of the loaf. Very basic recipe, really. Obviously, the pork makes the difference, but I think the spiciness of the ketchup helped revv it up a notch or two. Thanks for sharing with us.
This meatloaf had a wonderful flavor. I used a regular loaf pan and it fit perfectly. Even thought I bought lean pork, it was still pretty greasy during cooking. At the halfway point of the cooking (just prior to adding the ketchup glaze) I actually drained all the grease that I could from the loaf pan. Also, half the amount of ketchup would've worked just fine as ketchup was a little thick. But, the most important thing was the taste and it was delicious. Thanks so much for posting it:)

My hobby is catering and most of all BAKING. Believe it or not I enjoy what I do. Especially so when I can cook for 350 or more for some of our church dinners. Love it, love it, love it. Hopefully some of my recipes will be tried.
