Preheat oven to 375°F.
Saute onion in canola oil until glassy. Stir in grated apples, spices, salt and pepper, then remove to cool.
Whisk eggs and worcestershire sauce in a large mixing bowl, stir in bread crumbs and apple/onion mixture. Lightly crumble ground meat into wet ingredients, tossing together with two forks.
Spray one large (9 x 5 x 2.75) loaf pan or two smaller loaf pans. Gently press meatloaf into pan.
Bake 60-75 minutes on a rimmed baking sheet until a meat thermometer reads 160-180 deg F. Remove and rest 10 minutes. Slice into 1 inch pieces and enjoy!
*Optional: during the last 15 minutes of cooking, glaze with barbecue sauce, peach or apricot jam, or balsamic vinegar.
