Sticky Spiced Apricot Meatloaf

I have been wanting to make this meatloaf for quite a while, but getting the hubby to agree to eat it was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be. In the end he tried it, said he liked it but next time he would rather have his mom's meatloaf recipe! On the other hand I thought it was really good!

2 slices sandwich bread, chopped
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons apricot jam
1 teaspoon Worcester sauce
2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
7 dried apricots, chopped
2 teaspoons curry powder

Preheat the oven to 350°. In a small bowl, soak the bread in the milk. In another small bowl, whisk together the apricot jam and Worcestershire sauce.

In a large bowl, add the meat, almonds, apricots and curry powder. Add the bread-milk mixture, season with salt and mix together with your hands. Transfer to a loaf pan and brush with the jam mixture. Bake for 1 hour. Pour off the fat and let cool for 15 minutes before removing from the pan.

Apricots in meatloaf sounds different, but yummy.
