  1. The curry is the secret ingredient. It adds a warmth to the meatloaf that’s so good. Try it as written above and then adjust the amount to your liking. I usually double it.
  2. The sauce is sooo good and this recipe makes a lot. You should have enough to baste 3-4 times and then some for on top.
  3. Who has instant coffee these days!? I never do so I just use a tsp of coffee cold and left over from my morning pot. Works just as well.
