Who says meatloaf is dry? Not this one!
The apples give it both moisture and a slightly sweet taste.
1 cup grated apple (2 medium apples)
1/2 tsp celery seed
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp sage
1 tsp thyme
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
2 lbs ground pork
2 tbsps (or more) apple jelly
You can find a link to my homemade jelly at the end of this post.
Start by grating the apples and chopping the onion. Mix together with celery seed, salt, pepper, sage and thyme.
Mix milk and bread crumbs together so the crumbs get soggy. Another reason this loaf is not dry.
Mix the apple mixture and soggy bread crumbs with the pork along with the egg. Combine well then fill parchment lined loaf pan.
Spoon on some apple jelly and bake at 400 F for 1 hour, then broil 5 minutes to give it a little colour as pork can look a little "beige". You can add more apple jelly before broiling if you like.
Let the meatloaf rest for 5 minutes then lift it out of the pan to cut.

I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
