There are variations to this that I'll list at the bottom.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Combine first 7 ingredients in large bow.
Crumble ground meat over mixture and mix well (I use my hands, in latex gloves to keep mess down, as I think I get things mixed better) until everything is combined thoroughly.
Place in pan of choice and bake at 350 F for approximately 1 hours.
In place of Yoshita sauce you could use ketchup, barbecue sauce or even Italian dressing to change the flavor of the meatloaf. I have even used salsa to get a Mexican flavor - DH didn't like it as much.
For the meat you could substitute the beef with ground turkey, wild game or other ground meat of choice. You could also use Italian sausage for a bit more bite if you like.
If you want to use fewer pans you can layer sliced vegetables such as potatoes (I've only used reg. potatoes but you probably could use sweet potatoes or even squash I would think), carrots, or any other veggie that would taste good cooked w/meat.
Tip: If you line your pan first w/foil you can then place it in the freezer, then when frozen remove from pan, wrap tightly w/foil, place in freezer bag w/info & date and have ready for another time. I will frequently do this and then just use the same pan to cook everything in. I will usually only keep this in the freezer about 2-3 months as that's about how long I can go before DH begins to ask for meatloaf again :-)
