    I've been using this recipe for years, and it is FABULOUS! Everyone asks for the recipe. The only addition I've made is a thin layer of extra apricot preserves over the meat before spooning on the stuffing mix.

    OMG! This was a fantastic twist on the traditional meatloaf. It was easy to assemble and cooked up wonderfully. The apricot preserves added at the end was the perfect compliment to the curried stuffing. This would be an easy, but attractive, dish to serve to company. We will try this again and soon!
