This Melt-in-your-mouth meatloaf really shines with the special five-spice glaze.

Ingredients:

Meatloaf:
6 slices light whole wheat bread, torn into tiny pieces (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 pounds lean ground sirloin*
1 medium green apple, cored, finely chopped or grated (about 1 1/4 cups)
2 eggs
2 egg whites
3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 red onion, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
3/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons mustard

Glaze:
2/3 cup apple juice or cider
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons Chinese 5-Spice powder Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a jelly roll pan with foil.
  2. Place bits of bread on jelly roll pan and place in oven until toasted and crisp, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to bread and mix with your hands until ingredients are incorporated.
  4. Shape meat mixture into a loaf and place it on the center of the jelly roll pan.
  5. Bake for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours or until cooked through.
  6. To make the glaze, combine glaze ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer until liquid is reduced to a glaze consistency. Remove from heat and pour over the meatloaf, about 15 minutes before meatloaf is done.

Variation: Divide meatloaf into 8 to 12 portions and cook in a muffin tin sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Reduce cooking time to 1 hour and pour glaze over meatloaf portions 10 minutes before they are done.

To Freeze: Cook meatloaf according to directions but omit glaze. Let meatloaf cool. You can freeze in a loaf or you can portion it out into smaller serving containers. Regardless, pour desired amount of glaze over loaf or portions, seal in an airtight freezer-safe container and freeze.
