This meatloaf recipe has been in my family forever, and is listed in my mum’s recipe notebook as Meatloaf No 2, although whatever happened to Meatloaf No 1 is unknown!! This has always been a real favourite of mine, and it pleases me no end that it is now a favourite of my son as well! This recipe takes just minutes to prep, and then the oven does all the work, so is great for busy nights.
Plum Glazed Meatloaf
2 tbsp sugar
3 tsp dry mustard
3 tsp curry powder
