Then add two beaten eggs and again mix thoroughly. With your hands.
Mostly it's a trial and error thing. Mix in a little at a time until it "feels right".
Prepare your other vegetables at this point and start them cooking just before the next step.
.......open the foil to let the top brown.
Once the top is browned, turn it out into a shallow pan, (I do this over the sink because there will be juices that spill out when turning), remove all the foil and if the sides aren't browned enough for you, put the whole thing back in the oven for a few minutes. (Tip out all those excess juices into a bowl).
If you have an electric oven, you can turn it off and the residual heat will brown it enough.
Make your gravy if you are having any.
Some people just squirt tomato sauce instead, but I like gravy on my meatloaf.
And the gravy which turned out a little too thick this time.
Which didn't stop me eating it!
