Game Day Glazed Meatloaf
  • 1½ pounds ground pork
  • 1½ pounds ground ham (Easy to do in a food processor!)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
  • ½ cup grated onion (or you can chop VERY finely)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup finely ground quick oats (Grind in food processor, blender, or coffee/spice grinder.)
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon maple flavoring (like Mapleine) - OPTIONAL
  1. Heat oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine all of the meatloaf ingredients together well. (A stand mixer and dough hook is the easiest way to go.)
  3. Press into a ball and place in a medium size casserole dish. With damp hands, mold into a football shape. Take your time and make it as smooth as possible. This meatloaf is very lean and won't shrink much, so what you see is what you will get!
  4. Insert meat thermometer and place in oven. Bake for 40 minutes.
  5. When the 40 minutes are almost up, make your glaze:
  6. Combine all glaze ingredients in a medium saucepan. Stir well.
  7. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Once mixture comes to a boil, reduce to medium and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add maple flavoring if desired.
  8. Remove meat from oven. Brush generously with glaze.
  9. Return to oven for 20 minutes.
  10. Remove and glaze meat again.
  11. Return to oven for 20 minutes, or until meat thermometer says 165.
  12. Remove from oven. Brush lightly with glaze and place on serving platter.
  13. Allow meatloaf to sit for 10 minutes, then place thin strips of mozzarella cheese on top to look like laces.
  14. Serve with sauce for dipping or drizzling.
