A big Thank You to Jill P. For this meatloaf redux!
So shake up your usual meatloaf with a couple additions. Balsamic inside and out!
I mix the balsamic in with my eggs and fresh herbs (photo) before I add to the meat and vegetables.
The recipe calls for two tablespoons of traditional balsamic but I felt that the zesty lemon works better. The glaze is one half of a cup of ketchup to one quarter of a cup of balsamic. Again the lemon is really good here too.
As for the glaze I mix the two and spoon/spread on the shaped loaves then bake. The glaze darkens to a rich red color and the taste is the best.
