My husband was very fussy about meatloaf for some reason, I tried so many recipes over the years, and finally came up with this one and he loves it !

Ingredients

MEATLOAF INGREDIENTS:

1 c
bread crumbs
1 c
milk
1 1/2 lb
hamburger
1
egg
1/4 tsp
pepper
1 tsp
worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp
minced onion

SAUCE:

1/4 c
water
1/2 c
ketchup
3 Tbsp
mustard
1/4 tsp
salt
3 Tbsp
light brown sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Add bread crumbs to milk and let stand a few minutes.
Mix with ground beef, egg, pepper worcestershire sauce, and onion. Can either put in 9x5 bread pan, or I use the Jumbo muffin pans (which makes 6 large)
I add sliced peppers over top of each one and chopped pepper with the meatlof mixture.
2
Sauce: Combine ketchup, brown sugar, water, mustard,salt and pour over meat loaf. (I double this so I can have extra to pour over mashed potato and over meatloaf. Put all in a saucepan and heat up on stove top. Pour some over each one in the cups or over all in the loaf pan. Save the rest for serving with meal.
Bake at for 25-30 minutes, check with thermometer til it reads 170 degrees .

Seems so simple and like most other meatloaf recipes but the sauce is what makes it so good.
I also love the fact that when you cook them in the muffin cups, it takes half the time to cook, and easy to freeze a few if you have any leftovers!
