Not your regular meatloaf! This sweet and savory loaf is enhanced with the textures of raisins and almonds and the spiciness of curry. Pleasantly different. If using high quality curry, use 1 1/2 tablespoons; most store bought curries are not as flavorful so use more. If looking for more sweetness, try adding apricot preserves or a fruit chutney.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a large baking dish.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion in melted butter until browned, 5 to 7 minutes.
Combine 2 eggs, 1 cup milk, oats, raisins, almonds, vinegar, curry powder, sugar, salt, turmeric, and black pepper in a large bowl. Add onions and ground beef; mix well. Spread the beef evenly into the prepared baking dish; top with bay leaves.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and drain excess fat from the beef.
Beat 1 egg and 1/4 cup milk together in a bowl; pour over the beef mixture.
Continue baking in oven until the top is beginning to brown, about 30 minute more. Remove and discard bay leaves to serve.

Excellent! THe taste was wonderful made it when my picky daughter and pickier grandson came to visit they both loved it. Has a savory and fruity flavor mix that can't be beat. I wasn't sure about pouring the egg on the outside but it made an interesting touch and my 5 yr old grandson actually requested more of this part of the loaf! This is definitely on the staple recipe list at our house!
This was good... but my family prefers more traditional meatloaves. I subbed Thompson raisins for golden and omitted nuts. I thought the egg topping at the end didn't really add anything to the dish so I'd skip it if I make it again.
