You shouldn't care. One of the reasons we cook for ourselves is so we can eat what we want.

Why ought you to care what people think of you? Just be you and enjoy yourselves!

The thing is, when you put things in that absorb the liquids - like the breadcrumbs - the liquids are still in there. You need to reduce the liquids or pour them out, like I mentioned.

Skip the catsup and tomato sauce, add it as a side sauce or glaze if you want. Use leaner meat, less bread crumbs and, add in small diced onions or bell peppers. You may want to ask DH if he would prefer you make a brown gravy with it rather than a tomato based sauce for it.

Bread holds fats and juices, so less of that, tomato is liquid, don't add that either. Stop thinking meatloaf and think hamburger patty loaf with flavorful veggie bits mixed in - that should suit him. Not a normal meatloaf but, some people like it that way. Myself included because I am used to venison and rabbit for my meats, that makes a drier, more like a hamburger patty type of meat loaf. I find the ones with catsup or tomato sauce in them mushy, too much like farina to be a good entrée for dinner - too soft.

I use uncooked rolled oats instead of bread crumbs. Just enough to hold meat together.

Use the Swedish meatball recipe, make into loaf and bake as you do. That is what I use.

Have you shared your Swedish meatball recipe?
