    Chef Shannon Overmiller demonstrates how to make tomato glaze.

    Shannon Overmiller: Hello! I am Shannon Overmiller the Executive Chef at the Majestic in Old Town, Alexandria. Today we just demonstrated how to form the meatloaf into loaves, uniform loaves for baking. Next I will show you how to make the tomato glaze that you want to coat the tomato with. Basically at home you just use ketchup and that's fine, of course. We just like to spruce it up a little bit and we add some other ingredients into it. So now I will show you how make the meatloaf glaze and then we will go into coating the meatloaf.

    These are the ingredients that you will be using, approximately two tablespoon of white vinegar, half a cup of molasses or dark corn syrup, two tablespoon of brown sugar, and two tablespoons of whole grain mustard. Two cups of ketchup, a cup and-a-half of tomato paste. So to make the glaze simply what you do is, take your ingredients put them into a mixing bowl and that's all there is to it. Your mustard, your brown sugar, your vinegar. It helps break down your sugar as well so you don't get lumps of it into the glaze and your molasses or dark corn syrup whichever you choose.

    So now you just take this mixture and you mix it up. Incorporate all the ingredients together. Folding it in until your liquids are absorbed and then you can be more vigorous but you see that they are all dirty. That's who you fold the mixture and the spatula just rotate it. That's called folding. You want to add a little salt and pepper to this as well and taste for seasoning as we did before. Not too much salt, still add a good amount. A good amount of pepper. And that's basically it. Simple. There is little -- this is from ketchup. I am going to taste. It's good. So now I will show you after we mix the ingredients together. Next I will show you how to cook to meatloaf and then bake it.
