what you need
  • 2 lb. ground beef
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (plain or italian)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 cup onion
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups ketchup, divided
  • 1 cup brown sugar
make it
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the ground beef in a large bowl. Mix the bread crumbs, and water in separate bowl. Beat the egg in small bowl. Add all ingredients (except ketchup and brown sugar) in large bowl. Mix well (it's better to use your hands to make sure the mixture gets blended well). Once that is blended, add in 1 cup ketchup. Mix well.

Once you are done mixing, place into 13 X 9 baking dish. You can either keep it in a rectangular shape or make any other shape, but make sure you make a "gulley" down the center. Cover with aluminum foil.

Cook for 45 minutes. While the meatloaf is cooking take the remaining ketchup and mix with the brown sugar in small bowl.

Take off the aluminum foil, drain some water from the center (gulley) of the meatloaf. Add your mixture of ketchup and brown sugar to the top of the meatloaf. Leave off aluminum foil and cook another 30 minutes. Once done cooking, let the meatloaf sit for 15 minutes before you serve.
This meal is great served with mashed potatoes.

If you make extra sauce for the top of the meatloaf it goes well on the mashed potatoes. Prepare them as usual and then place them in a pan, take the extra sauce drizzle over top of the mashed potatoes and simmer for 15 minutes on a low heat.

Rated  by a cook on 3/29/2009 This meatloaf fell apart! Yes it tasted good but when I served it, it wasn't slices but mounds of meatloaf. I followed the directions, letting it sit for 15 minutes, used ground sirloin. I don't know maybe it shoud be 2 eggs?
