I love meatloaf, I know people who don't and they roll their eyes at the word, m-e-a-t-l-o-a-f. But me, in the cooler weather a warm juicy meatloaf hits the spot! It's like a burger, but better.
I have tried fancy meatloafs, hard boiled eggs, olives, different herbs, spices or even cheese but this is my 'go to', my basic, my can't go wrong recipe. This always turns out perfectly!
I mix together my ground beef, a beaten egg, breadcrumbs, onion, milk, salt, pepper and worcestershire sauce.
Then I mix the sauce - brown sugar, mustard and ketchup.
I form it into a loaf shape and drop it into my af pan.
Cover it with yummy sauce and BAM!!! You're done!
You could also use BBQ sauce instead if you wish.
I always think it's interesting to see what prices people pay for groceries around the world so here is what I paid. This happened to be regular price.
This was about $5 lb but I usually pay around $3-$4 when it's on sale.
The leftovers the next day - YUMMMMMMMMMmmmmmm
2lbs pounds ground beef (approximately)
1 onion, chopped very finely
1 cup milk
1 cup dried bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1/3 cup ketchup
a few shakes of worcestershire
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
2.In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, onion, milk, worcestershire and bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Form into a loaf shape and place in a 5x9 inch loaf pan OR form into a loaf and place on a baking sheet.
4.In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Mix well and pour over the meatloaf.
5.Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1.5 hours.
I usually turn on broil for the last couple minutes to make the sauce a little
more caramelized. (watch you don't burn it!)
