The sweet taste of apple and “ketchup” contrasted with curry, makes this meat loaf really tasty. My son, Jonathan, absolutely loves this meatloaf and he is not really a meatloaf fan. Ginny Larsen, one of the cookbook authors in the Low-Carbing Among Friends series of cookbooks loves this meat loaf as well.  One of my faves too!
