This meat loaf was for an out doors excursion for my son and 3 of his friends. These young men are tall, tough fellows and they like wholesome "meaty" dishes. This recipe is terrific as with the addition of fruit and nuts, instead of just one meat loaf, I was able to make two - now, there'll be more than enough for the boys.

...and it's absolutely yummy!

Use silicone baking tins so that you save time in greasing and lining baking pans.

Only ever purchase premium grade ground beef so as to consume less fat. Otherwise, you have the additional step of pre-cooking the ground beef and draining away the fat before proceeding with the recipe.
