The chopped prunes and sautéed vegetables add a slightly sweet taste, which is well balanced by the addition of vinegar. The final result is a flavourful, moist, and firm meatloaf with a yummy crust. Leftovers make very tasty sandwiches.

Fabulous new take on meatloaf! I didn't have prunes, so I used dried figs. I had 1 lb of pork and 1/2 lb of beef so I used it all, and I used finely cut lunch ham meat. The result was two loaves made, with delectable taste. We had 4 children at the table (ages 5, 6 and 2 eight year olds) and they didn't leave an ounce behind. Who knew there were so many vegetables lurking inside? ; ) Dinner for 6 plus leftovers for tomorrow's lunch. I'll be making this one again.
Super tasty, what can I say otherwise. The only oddball here is the "sandwich meat". I don't think it needs thee uhhh Mortadella sausage at all. We put it in, but next time I'll probably leave it out.
very tasty and moist...made it for 6 portions, and between the 4 of us, it was all gone! well worth the effort.
Delicious, my husband was a bit afraid of the prunes but once he tried it he loved it. We just wished there was some kind of sauce to go with it.
My kids loved this dish and usually they turn their noses up at meatloaf. Very moist and tasty.
I was so nervous about putting prunes in a meatloaf! What a great flavour. Nice change from the regular ketchupy coating.
It was excellent. The prunes are definitely adding a lot of taste..makes it sweeter. We really liked it. Very very moist. I would do it again and the leftover are perfect for a night where you are in a rush and don't have time to cook a good and healthy meal. Thank you for another great recipe.
I didn't have any Mortadella or ham, so I just left those ingredients out. I made this in a loaf pan and it came out with a lightly crispy crust - yums! My boyfriend came in the house wondering what the great smell was!
