I found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine quite a few years ago. My two boys just loved it when they were growing up, and when you find something that the kids like you tend to stick with it. It's one of those keepers.
The only change that I made to the recipe is that I use 1 Tablespoon of vinegar in the sauce instead of 2.
This is such a simple recipe, and you could make it in the morning or the night before, come home from work and pop it in the oven. If it's been refrigerated, you might need to cook it a few minutes more. And you can mix the sauce and keep it in the fridge also. It's the sauce that makes this recipe, although the meatloaf smells delicious cooking.

How to Make Sweet and Sour Meatloaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Mis together beef, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and eggs
  2. add onion and 1/2 of the tomato sauce
  3. form into a loaf in a sprayed 9x5x3 inch pan
  4. bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes
  5. In a saucepan combine the topping ingredients and bring to a boil
  6. pour over the meatloaf; bake 10 minutes more
  7. When I pour the sauce over the meatloaf, I take the meatloaf out of the loaf pan, put it in a small baking dish and then put it back in the oven in the baking dish. That way the sauce completely covers the meatloaf.
