Here's another I can't believe I havne't posted this yet! this recipe came off EB but is very very similar to the one mum used when we were growing up.

meatloaf is something we generally only have a few times a year - generally in winter - and when i make it i make it low fat and full of grated veg, and i make it into smaller loaves. usually i double the meat mix and make 4 meatloaves. i cook them for the first part of the cooking then freeze 3 of them. i then make the full mix of the sauce to go over the half quantity of meat. when i use the frozen ones i just need to make more sauce and cook for the last little bit.

500gm sausage mince *
500gm mince meat
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs **
2 onions finely chopped
1 dessertspoon curry powder
salt, pepper
1tbsp chopped parsley
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water

barbecue sauce
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup tomato sauce ***
2tbsp worcestershire sauce ****
1tbsp vinegar ***
2tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp coffee powder
15g marg/butter *****
1tbsp lemon juice

Meatloaf: Combine all ingredients, mixing in the combined milk and water last. Place in greased loaf tin (I actually also line the tin with bacon !) Bake in moderate oven for 30 mins, remove. Bring all sauce ingredients to the boil, simmer 5 minutes. Drain fat from meatloaf and baste with sauce, return to oven for further 45 mins basting frequently with sauce.

* i don't use this, i just use extra fine mince instead (pork or veal mince would be good too) I also add 2 carrots & 2 zucchinis grated.
** I used to sub this with oatmeal. for gluten-free use GF breadcrumbs
*** make sure yours is GF if needed
**** not GF, used a splash of tamari instead
***** i don't use this at all

I am going to make this week's in muffin tins, inspired by dani :)
