As with a lot of my recipes, this was handed down from my grandmother, to my mother, and then to me (and my siblings). This recipe has always been a staple in our household and we LOVE it! I love all kinds of meatloaves, but nothing beats grandma's!

    Place meatloaf mixture on a greased cookie sheet. I like to cook my Meatloaf on a cookie sheet rather than in a meatloaf dish (more room for that yummy caramelized ketchup!). I spread it somewhat thin (perhaps an inch high) and then smother in ketchup to taste. I use enough ketchup to get it nice and caramelized and still have a slight bit of juiciness underneath.

    Put on the lower oven rack and cook for 1 1/2 - 2 hours until meat is thoroughly cooked and ketchup is nice a caramelized.
