When I was younger, I never cared for meatloaf. As I grew older, I began to love and especially love it leftover as a sandwich with cheese and mayo. My sons never cared for it either but suddenly in their mid and late 20’s love it. I guess it’s something you hate as a kid but love as an adult!
1 lb. hamburger mix
1 lb. 80% lean ground hamburger (or 2 lb. mix)
1 cup bread crumbs
1 small onion diced fine
1 egg, lightly beaten
¼ cup Milk
¼ cup ketchup
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. ground Pecorino Romano (see my post on grating your own)
1 tsp. ground mustard
1 tbsp. Worchester sauce
Topping: ½ cup ketchup/3 tbsp. brown sugar; mix
*I like to dice/mince my onion in a food processor. I use the small compartment of a Ninja three piece food processor.
Add to hamburger to a large mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients mix by hand until all is incorporated.
Add aluminum foil in a baking pan. Spray with Pam.
Form your meatloaf mixture into an oval shape & place in pan.
Pour the ketchup/brown sugar topping over top and bake 375° for 1 hour 15 mins.
Let rest 10 minutes when done.
I serve with scalloped potatoes and green beans or mashed potatoes, cream corn and green beans. For some reason, I just think green beans go great with meatloaf. Of course you can serve it with whatever veggie you prefer! However, leftovers are delicious on a bread with mayo (some like yellow mustard) and a slice of American cheese.
