Meatloaf (the food…not the band)

I know it sounds weird, but my mother used to embed a hard-boiled egg in the middle of hers. Wish I had her recipe.

I found this one…and it was good…but here is my adaptation:

Ingredients for the meatloaf
1 1/2 pounds ground beef. Get lean…it matters.
1 egg
1 onion, chopped
1 cup milk
1 cup bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste

Ingredients for the glaze/topping
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1/3 cup ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

(1) Make the topping in a small bowl

Combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup.

(2) Make the meatloaf in a big bowl

  • Combine theses
    – beef
    – egg
    – onion
    – milk
    – bread crumbs
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste
  • Place in a lightly greased 5×9 inch loaf pan
    OR form into a loaf and place in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish.

(3) Pour the topping over the meatloaf 

Tip: you may wind up with extra. No need to overdo it.

(4) Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour
