Good texture, baked at 375 for 1/5 hours to reach the 160F internal temp. Used tomato soup for topping, which was good. Will make this again, without the Italian seasoning (over powering) and half the salt. Great meal Chef John.

This recipe is awesome! I'm a meatloaf lover and have never found a recipe that beat mine and this one does. 325 did not cook my loaf in the time provided. I increased to 350 degrees and 400 for the last 7 minutes. Also add the glaze the last 15 minutes not after the 1st 15 minutes. When you drain the grease it just runs off. I ended up making more and adding it again for the last 15 minutes. Extremely moist and its done with vegetabls that you can't see or taste. Ingenious!!!
