Mama's Meat Loaf

Any time one of my recipes has "Mama" in the title, it came from my lovely mother, Mrs. Joyce Craig. She is an excellent cook and I still rely on her daily for cooking advice.

Prep:

25 Min

Cook:

55 Min

Ingredients

1/4 c
chopped onion
1/4 c
chopped bell pepper
1/4 c
chopped carrot
1
egg
1/4 c
milk
3 slice
white bread (hamburger or hot dog buns may be substituted)
1 can(s)
(small can) tomato sauce
1/4 c
ketchup
1/4 c
mustard
1/4 c
brown sugar
1 lb
ground beef

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make sure carrots, peppers, and onions are grated/chopped and in a bowl ready and waiting.
2
Add milk, egg, and tomato sauce.
3
Add your three slices of bread and let sit for about 5 minutes so it can get good and mushy.
4
Work all ingredients with hands, adding meat as you go until all ingredients and all meat are mashed around together in the bowl. In a seperate bowl, whisk together your ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar. This will be your topping sauce.
5
Spray one loaf pan (or a few smaller ones) and shape a loaf into the pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until well done. I usually take mine out and drain mine every 15 minutes or so. About 30 minutes into the baking process, take your meatloaf(s) out and spread your sauce on top. It is soo good and tangy!
