Ok I'm not much of a meatloaf person...I think I only made maybe 5 in my life. So I decided to try again and I made this tonight but with a few alterations and it still worked. I changed the servinngs to 6, so that the meat would measure up to about a lb (that's all I had on hand). I also added about 1/2 cup of basmati rice, a few fine chopped mushrooms, crumbled whole wheat crackers, 1 tbsp of wheat germ (extra vitamins always a plus!), 3 cloves garlic minced, 1 egg and a dash of Mrs Dash. For the sauce I used half ketchup and the other half Cattleman's Sweet Honey BBQ sauce, a splash of worcestershire sauce, a tsp or 2 of dijon mustard and about 1/3cup plus 1 tbsp of the brown sugar. I did put some on the bottom of the pan and the rest on the top. I saved some of the glaze so I could reapply later. I baked for 1 hour uncovered cause well I don't think it specified. I put the rest of the glaze on the top and sides of the loaf and stuck it in the oven for about 10-15 more minutes while the rest of the sides were finishing up. Finished product was interesting. I expecting to see this pool of sauce on the bottom of the pan from the beginning, but it was absorbed into the meat. Very good meatloaf. My 3 yr old gobbled it up and guess what we're having for lunch tomorrow.. meatloaf sandwiches YUM! I will try this recipe again, tweaking it to my tastes and textures along the way, oh and definitely doubling it. THANKS
