Meatloaf. Not an especially tasty sounding food by name or reputation it seems. Although there are many variations of this dish, I for one have not so good memories of a soggy vegetable packed sponge that would be smothered in ketchup in order to deem it edible. So when the word “meatloaf” was mentioned in our house growing up, it usually wasn’t met with much enthusiasm. Things have changed along with the meatoaf.

For this recipe I have kept it simple and opted to omit the veggies all together, leaving them as the side dish they were meant to be. A great one to pair with this meatloaf is my Roasted Asparagus or my Creamed Spinach with Garlic. Adding the glaze tops off this meatloaf and creates a deliciously rich glaze that compliments the meat itself. This is my go to meatloaf recipe and my daughter absolutely loves when I make it. It also makes great meatloaf sandwiches if there is any left over.

What You Will Need To Make This Glazed Meatloaf Recipe

2 lbs ground beef

1 cup of bread crumbs

1 tsp sea salt

2 eggs

1 tsp cracked black pepper

1/4 cup of the glaze sauce (recipe below)

Glaze Sauce

1 cup of organic ketchup

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 cloves of garlic or 1 tbsp

1/2 tsp garlic salt

Directions

Begin by making the glaze. Take a sauce pan and add the glaze recipe above to the pot.

Let it simmer on the stove top for about 5-7 minutes making sure to stir from time to time. When ready (the glaze will be a little deeper color when ready) remove from the heat and set aside.

In a large bowl combine the ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Add in a 1/4 cup of the glaze sauce.

Mix the meatloaf (preferably with your hands) and combine all ingredients well.

Using either a 10 inch cast iron pan or a loaf pan, place inside and shape it to where the meat is spread evenly in the pan. You will want to shape it to where there is room alongside the edges to allow the oil in the meat to run off. This will help to brown the outer edges.

Bake at 375℉/196℃ for about 30 minutes.
