Vegetable "Fall Apart" Meatloaf with Balsamic "Crunchy Deliciousness" Glaze

My mom has made this loaf several times, and it has gotten rave reviews, so I decided to try it last night, when we had Cousin Jonathan over for dinner. The recipe calls for parmesan cheese, which I love, but since Kevin is anti-cheese, I had to omit it from the recipe. I was a bit concerned that the lack of cheese would make this flavorless or dry, but it was actually quite delicious. The topping to this loaf comes out sweet and crunchy, which, to me, is pure delight - I love a crunchy crust. The inside of the loaf is full of veggies (I added a lot more than the recipe called for), and it has great tomato balsamic flavor. I was a big fan of this one. We ate almost the whole thing between the 3 of us. Yup, we downed almost 1.5 pounds of ground turkey. Yikes. Anyway, I'd love to make this again, but Kevin thought it was only okay, so I might have to work on him...

The critique
Great flavor but totally fell apart. Would like to try again with them a little more together, but the flavor was great.
