This is a really good and moist meat loaf.  I use a non stick meat loaf pan with an insert that has holes in it to let the grease/fat drain out while cooking. I also spray the pan and insert with non stick spray.  I add 1 tsp of groung flax meal to the hamburg mixture and I leave out the salt, which would reduce the sodium a lot.  I've tried replacing the chili sauce with catsup and the chili sauce is much better.
