Very flavorful meatloaf. The pineapple preserves were wonderful in this. If you don't like sweeter style dishes then this is not for you. I've made it twice and left out the brown sugar from the meatloaf itself the second time (not the top glaze though). Was still just fine so that's one way to cut the sweet if you like. Truly if you try to substitute regular pineapple for the preserves you'll be missing out. Reminded me of sweet and sour meatballs in a way but not entirely. I didn't process mine just mixed by hand. Also I always drain my meatloaves about 30 minutes into the cooking right before I top with the glaze. Read More

I made this recipe exactly as listed tonight for dinner & it was delicious! I was excited about the pineapple preserves my husband loves anything pineapple but the amount of brown sugar worried me. In the end the worry was unnecessary as it was the best tasting meatloaf I have ever tasted...& I made it! Tangy moist & a sweetness that really adds to the overall flavor. You will impress yourself & your fellow diners w/this one especially if you're like me & can barely boil water unassisted:) Read More

Made this and it was GREAT! Everyone loved it and I was told I could make this again any time! As I can never leave well enough alone I switched out the ketchup in the sauce and added Chili Garlic Sauce. This was awesome! Gave the meatloaf a sweet yet spicy taste. Try it! You won't be disappointed. (Adjust Chili Garlic with ketchup depending on your fondness for spice) Read More

wow....taste wonderful. I will l definitely be making again. I never was a fan of meatloaf but I love pineapple so I decided to try this recipe and it was wonderful. The whole family loved it. I didn't have access to as food processor so I used a blender as and blended all the ingredients except the meat. Folded the blended mix with the ground beef and it really help keep everything moist and flavorful. Read More
