    This is my go to meat loaf recipe. I tweak it a lot depending on what I have on hand. I always put loads of grated veggies in.

    Lots of veggies and a touch of curry set this meatloaf apart. There isn't much starch in the mix to absorb the liquid from all that celery and onion, so we ended up pouring off a lot of rich broth that cries out to be made into something further -- but also washed away a lot of the nice sauce. Slices better after it sits a while; fresh out of the oven you'll be able to spoon it like a casserole. After all is said, we loved this meatloaf, actually. Made for OZ/NZ swap October 2008.

    I made this for 123 hit wonders, and it was very good. I do recommend adding the instant coffee to your sauce, as it cuts the sweetness down, and the sauce takes on a barbecue sauce sort of flavor. This did produce a lot of grease, so if you have a grease-draining meatloaf pan (I don't) it would be useful. I just drained the grease off intermittently and then patted the meatloaf with paper towels when it was done. The reason I didn't give this 5 stars is that the cooking time, and/or temperature didn't seem right to me. I had to cook it for twice as long as the recipe said, and thought it might've helped to have the oven temp be higher. All in all though, a great, and different kind of meatloaf. Thanks Jewelies!
