My boys love meatloaf, especially this recipe that calls for a mix of lean ground beef and ground pork.
The sauce is brushed on top three times during cooking, creating a mouth watering, sweet, tangy, and caramelly glaze.
Yes, I said caramelly.
It is really simple. Use a large ice cream scoop ... the recipe will make 14 hearts ~ how appropriate for Valentine's day!
I have an aversion to touching raw meat, so I improvised ...
I wasn't sure how the top part of the heart would look after baking (I learned from making heart cookies and heart rolls that I need to exaggerate them, or they'll grow/bake into a blob), so here's what it looks like before cooking.
These are only baked for 20-25 minutes (versus 40-45).
From my heart, to my boy's heart ...
