Tantalizingly Tangy Meatloaf

Stacy B. 0

"Meatloaf with a sauce that will keep them coming back for more. The sauce contains pineapple preserves, brown sugar and ketchup. It glazes up real nice over the meatloaf. I've NEVER had leftovers even when I've tripled the recipe!"

This is a great meatloaf as is. Thanks for sharing! I just don't understand why people "review" these recipes when they are actually reinventing their own. If they have a great recipe, why not just enter it for all to see! Some even cut out the meat!


This was absolutely delicious. I prepared the recipe exactly as noted. I feel that it is best to try it precisely as written before making judgments, substitutions, or adjusting to personal preferences. The ingredients are few, simple, and inexpensive. The flavors blend in beautifully together and complement each other quite nicely. I will make this again exactly the same way.


i was really surprised how well this turned out, i wasn't sure about putting this mixture over meatloaf but for the first time in a long time there was no meatloaf left over to throw out...i made the basic meatloaf recipe provided, with 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1/2 cup of diced onion. for the pineapple mixture, i used 1/3 cup ketchup, a little less than 1/4 cup of brown sugar (not packing it) and 1/2 cup of DOLE crushed pineapple. beat it with a mixer..heated it in a stove and into the fridge for a few hours..poked some holes in the meat when i put it in the baking dish (so the mixture could run inside the meat) i poured the mixture over the meat half way thru cooking (like the recipe says)and i'll never go back to my old meatloaf again. it was not too sweet at all...we had it a few hours ago... and we cant wait to have it again!!
