Written Method - 
Preheat the oven to 350F.  Spray a 9x5" loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.  
Mix together all the ingredients for the meatloaf in a large bowl.

Using your hands, gently mix all the ingredients together.  Do not overmix.  You don't want it to be tough.  

Form the meatloaf in the greased loaf pan.

In a small bowl, mix together the ingredients for the glaze and pour over the meatloaf.  

Spread evenly and place the meatloaf in the preheated oven.  Bake for around 1 hour and 30 minutes or until the meatloaf is cooked through.  Let cool for several minutes prior to slicing.
