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 meat loaf fan.   After many years and many meat loaf recipes later, this is still one of my favorites.

1 1/2 lb lean ground beef (0.680 kg)
1 apple, peeled, cored and grated
1/4 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix, OR oat bran (50 mL)
2 tbsp dehydrated chopped onion (25 mL)
2 eggs
1 tbsp tomato paste (15 mL)
Sweetener to equal 1 tbsp sugar (15 mL)
