Meatloaf with Sweet and Tangy Sauce

Prep Time: 15 minutes Yield: 8 servings

2 1/2 lbs ground beef
2 eggs
1 onion chopped
1t. Salt
2t. pepper
2c. Old fashioned Oats
2 1/2c. Ketchup
2T. Mustard
1/3c. packed Brown Sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl add ground beef, eggs, onion, salt, pepper, oats and 1c. Ketchup. Mix together well. Place inside a bread pan or 8x8 pan. Shape loaf. Cook for 30 minutes.
In a small bowl mix remaining ketchup, mustard and brown sugar together. Pour over top of meatloaf then cook for 15 minutes longer.


This is a simple meatloaf recipe I've come up with. I made it last night for dinner and it turned out well but there are some things I did a little different than the above recipe. I didn't have any oats so I used some crushed butter crackers instead and I forgot to add the onion. It didn't hit me about the onion until well after we ate dinner. I also cooked my meatloaf a little too long, 45 minutes at 400 then 15 minutes more and after the fact I would have preferred it at the above stated times.
The topping is, I think, very good! It's sweet and tangy and is a nice addition to the simple meatloaf. I found it from another recipe I was using for meatloaf.
Since this is such a simple recipe you can add to it according to the likes of your family and tastes. Enjoy!

*Sorry, no picture, I forgot to snap one after it was done. I'll edit this post the next time I make this meatloaf.
