Best Meatloaf With A Chutney Sauce

Best Meatloaf with a Chutney Sauce ~ Best ever Meatloaf baked in a Chutney Sauce and then served together #Meatloaf #Dinner #EasyMeatloaf

We do not have meatloaf on a regular basis, but when we do, I always make this recipe for the best Meatloaf with a Chutney Sauce, which is outstanding.

The first couple of times I made this, I experimented with the texture of the Onion and the Celery. I made it with very finely chopped Onion and Celery, but did not like it as much. Then slowly I chopped it a little coarser until I found the right texture, which also gives the tastiest bite.

If you like a denser meaty meatloaf, feel free to chop the veggies as fine as you like. The Meatloaf shrinks quite a bit on baking, but it is more than enough for at least 8 servings with some to spare.

And leftovers are absolutely delicious on a sandwich the next day !

  1. Yum, my lot love meatloaf and since I've had the little two I've never made it again, how odd this post made me realise that. The chutney sauce sounds amazing too!

  2. Looks so good Linda! We are not so big on chutney here in America and I'm not sure why. Seems like we slap catsup or BBQ sauce on just about everything.

  3. Thank you for sharing your Best Meatloaf With Chutney Sauce on Foodie Friends Friday this weekend. I've pinned and shared. We look forward to seeing you again with another delicious recipe.
