19No Tea Towel Needed

20Vinegar: White or Malt - I have used both and its still great

21Sugar: White or Brown - I have used both and its still great

22Tomato Sauce - is what we in NZ call it - in some countries this is Ketchup - this is not Passata or a pasta sauce - its the stuff you dip your chips (french fries) into

23Yes there is coffee in it, its only 1 teaspoon and you cant taste it as coffee - its just gives flavour to the sauce

24Its Meatloaf - you can try different minces, some people do without the sausage meat - it should all still work fine, this is just the recipe I was given.

Absolutely love this meatloaf recipe! Actually it was my first attempt at making any type of meatloaf ever and it was a total success 🙂 It is so easy and delicious and the whole family loved it and simply served with mashed potatoes and the amazing gravy (it is sensational). I think the only problem I had with this meatloaf was convincing everyone not to go back for seconds and thirds so there was some leftover for sandwiches the next day , which are also amazing with a little leftover gravy on them. Will be a regular go to meal in this house because of the fact that the entire family really enjoy it and it is so easy to prepare.

It was first time doing a meatloaf in sc and the first after the last one failed miserably years ago. All I can say is yummy. Will definitely become a family staple. Left the onion out but used onion salt instead. Even toddler cleaned his plate

First ever Meatloaf I’ve made & was delighted. Hubby is a huge Meatloaf fan so the pressure was on & I think I nailed it! It’s now on our regular meals list.
Really easy & very tasty & tender. Definitely a winner!

Loved this meatloaf recipe. The only thing I changed was that I cooked it in a conventional oven for about an hour as my son is unable to eat slow cooker meals for a little while following a bone marrow transplant.
