I tried making meatloaf tonight based on this recipe, although I used the rest of my homemade bread instead of cracker crumbs, dried onion instead of fresh, and I added some Worcestershire suace and Cayenne. It wound up more moist than expected, but I was able to shape it.
I hand-shaped the loaf, and baked it on my broiler pan. I guessed it to be done about 45 minutes later, then remembered I had an instant-read thermometer, so I pulled the loaf out of the oven, and it was in the high 150's, so I figured it's done.
I'm not really sure how good it is objectively, but I like it.
