How to Make Cranberry Meat Loaf


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In small bowl stir together cranberry sauce and brown sugar. Set aside.
  2. In large bowl combine ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, bell pepper, milk, egg product, salt, parsley, thyme and oregano. In large shallow baking pan, shape meat mixture into a 8x4x2-inch loaf. I baked mine in a loaf pan. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Spread ¼ cup of reserved cranberry sauce mixture on top of loaf. Bake 20 to 30 minutes more.
  3. In small saucepan heat remaining cranberry sauce mixture over low heat until heated through. Serve with meatloaf.
