Easy Meatloaf & Best Ever Sloppy Joes

This is another recipe I've had for years. I have no clue where I found it but I'm glad I did. It is YUMMY!

Easy Meatloaf
1.5 lbs Ground Beef
1 egg
1 onin, chopped
2 T prepared mustard
1/3 C Ketchup
1/2 C Milk
1 C dried Bread Crumbs*
(about 1.5 slices, torn into small pieces)
salt & pepper
1.5 C Brown Sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350degrees.
2. In large bowl combine Beef, Egg, Onion, Milk, & Bread Crumbs. Season w/ salt & pepper.
3. Form 6 balls & place them in greased 9x13 baking dish.
4. In a separate bowl, combine Brown Sugar, Mustard, Ketchup. Mix well & pour over meatloaf.
Bake 350 for 1 hour.
* Tear bread into crumbs the day before so they can get stale.
Or you can toast them in the oven at 200degrees.


You can use packaged bread crumbs if you are in a pinch but using torn up pieces of bread makes a huge difference & is the way to go.

**This is Kristie- I'm hijacking this blog post to say that Alison passed this recipe on to me a few months ago and it has been a big hit at our house!  I love this meatloaf and had it on our menu for this week!  YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS ONE!  It's really sweet so of course your kids will LOVE it.  Ok, thanks for letting me interrupt!

Kristie, you just made me smile! I had no idea you were rummaging thru my draft recipes. :-)

Since I had extra hamburger meat I figured I'd give you an extra recipe.
