RECIPE {sweet & sour meatloaf}

This is a favorite in our house. A few years ago, I was looking for a good meatloaf recipe and my husband actually found this one. I decided to try it and I haven't made another kind of meatloaf since. This is seriously the best meatloaf I have ever had. And it's so easy to make! I have found that we prefer it in a 9x9 pan instead of a loaf pan. It seems to not get as done in the loaf pan because of the thickness. But it comes out perfect in a 9x9.

SWEET & SOUR MEATLOAF (via Allrecipes.com)
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 eggs
1 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons prepared mustard

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, bread crumbs, salt, ground black pepper, eggs, onion flakes and 1/2 of the can of tomato sauce. Mix together well and place into a 5x9 inch loaf pan.
  3. Push the meatloaf down into the pan forming a well for the sauce around all the edges.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the remaining tomato sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, white sugar and mustard. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.
  6. After meatloaf has cooked for 40 minutes, remove from oven and pour sauce over the top of the meatloaf.
  7. Return to oven and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 20 more minutes. Let sit 5 minutes before removing from pan.
