Meatloaf Recipe (with rich glaze)

Meatloaf Recipe (with delicious glaze)

This is the meatloaf I’ve been making for many, many years.  It’s the glaze that makes it so delicious! I made it again the other night (I haven’t made it in a while) and my husband was absolutely thrilled. Ha!  This recipe makes enough to feed 8 people. It can be frozen and leftovers work well in the lunch box.

Meatloaf Recipe

1 kg lean mince

1 egg

1 onion (diced)

2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley

2 bacon rashes (diced)

1 cup breadcrumbs (I use fresh)

1 dessert spoon curry

Salt and pepper

½ cup milk

½ cup water


2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon instant coffee (I don’t worry about the caffeine because it’s such a small amount but decaffeinated works well too)

¾ cup tomato sauce

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

½ cup water

½ cup lemon juice (optional)

Meatloaf Recipe

Meatloaf: Combine all ingredients in a bowl (you may need to use your hands).  Press the mixture into a loaf shape in the middle of a roasting tray with small sides (to hold the glaze).

Glaze: Place all ingredients in a saucepan and heat until butter is melted and easy to combine. Pour half the glaze over the meat and cook in the oven 180°C for 30 minutes.  Pour over the rest of the glaze and cook for a further 30 minutes, basking occasionally. Check the meatloaf is cooked through by opening at the centre.
