As I was growing up, we had meatloaf every Tuesday night for dinner. You see Tuesday night was my mom's bowling night and meatloaf was something she could prepare during the day so that all we had to clean up was the pan the meatloaf was cooked in and our dinner dishes. I did not eat meatloaf for some time as a young adult - I must have been tired of it. But after while I came back to this food of my past. The trouble is I could not find a good recipe that I liked - they were either too dry or the loaf fell apart when I lifted it from the pan. But now I have found a wonderful a dish I love!

How to Make Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix thoroughly together the meats, milk, eggs, soup mix, ginger, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. (I found this easy to do with my hands - just remember to remove your rings - you don't want to have to be picking meatloaf out of your diamond - lol). Shape into a loaf and place it in a lightly greased 5x9 pan. Mix together the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce. Top meatloaf with the brown sugar, then the ketchup mixture.
  2. Place in 350 degree oven and back 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until your meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.
