For years I have been on the search for a meatloaf recipe that my family would willingly eat without having to coax them by saying "show me how the piggies eat." I think that I have finally stumbled upon that very recipe on Pinterest- Alton Brown's Good Eats Meatloaf recipe- http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/good-eats-meat-loaf-recipe/index.html
I actually only made half of this recipe. I was pretty sure that my husband and I would be unable to eat an entire 2 lb meatloaf in a few days. ;) And even though the recipe called to just finely chop the veggies in the food processor and NOT puree them, I did puree them. Great trick for mothers (or wives) of children (or husbands, not naming any names here...) that hate vegetables. Plus, I think the pureed veggies made the meatloaf just that much more moist.
The Good Eats Meatloaf was tasty. The husband loved it (didn't even notice the hidden vegetables! Shhhhh...) and I actually really enjoyed it. I didn't even need extra ketchup squirted on top and served on the side for dipping- a first for me when it comes to meatloaf.
The glaze was sweet and just a little spicy. I think I have finally found my go-to meatloaf recipe. ;)
