This isn’t just any meatloaf! This recipe for balsamic meatloaf is juicy and moist, and features sauteed onion, zucchini, and carrot in the mix. It’s topped with a balsamic vinegar and ketchup glaze that caramelizes as it cooks for a ton of flavor.
Form the mixture into a loaf on parchment-lined sheet. Make sure you firmly pack in the loaf to help it stay together.
The consistency of the meatloaf should be similar to that of meatballs. It should hold together in a shape but not be crumbly or easily fall apart. If your mixture is too wet, add additional panko breadcrumbs until it reaches the right consistency. If it's too dry, add a little extra ketchup.
