Meatloaf

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup dried bread crumbs (flavored is good too; you can even grind up your favorite croutons)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
Sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C.)

2. Sauté the onions in a Tablespoon of butter. Put sautéed onion in a large bowl.

2. To the same large bowl, add and combine the beef, egg, onion, milk, and bread (or bread product of your choice.) Season with salt and pepper to taste and place in a lightly greased 5×9 inch loaf pan, or you can form it into a loaf and place it in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking dish. In lieu of greasing the pan, you can also line it with aluminum foil. That also makes removing it from the loaf pan much easier.

3. In a separate small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard and ketchup. Mix well and pour over the meatloaf. If you’re a big sauce lover, you can make extra to pour over it after it’s out of the oven.

4. Bake at 350°F (175°C) for about 1 1/2 hours. As with anything else you cook, checking the internal temperature with an internal thermometer is always best. Ovens vary greatly.
