This recipe incorporates some classic meatloaf ingredients without the egg and breadcrumbs. I have added a little maple syrup for sweetness and stuffed it with zucchini. The zucchini is perfectly cooked with a little crunch and the bacon nicely finishes the maple crust. This recipe is truly a winner!
