How to Make Mom's Meat Loaf


  1. Chop onions, make breadcrumbs, beat eggs.
    Soak breadcrumbs in milk. Add meat, eggs, onion and seasonings. Mix well.
    Place in loaf pan.
  2. For Super Sauce: Mix together catsup, brown sugar, nutmeg and dry mustard.
    Spread over meat in pan.
    **NOTE** i like to shape the tops and sides of the loaf with a fork; the ridges help the sauce to drip down the sides, so the sides look as yummy as the top.
  3. Bake one hour at 350.
  4. (Don't forget to leave enough for meat loaf sandwiches the next day!)
