My mom is a great cook. Everything she makes is delicious. Well, everything but meatloaf. My mom's meatloaf was the worst. I can remember my brother and I gagging at dinner because the meatloaf was the same consistency as Alpo.
As a result, my meatloaf wasn't the best.
Wasn't. Past tense. Once I found this recipe, I became the meatloaf queen.
This is the best meatloaf I have ever eaten. It's out of the WVU Neonatal ICU cookbook. I've tweaked it a little to our tastes and it's fantastic.
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 c. bread crumbs
1 finely chopped small onion
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
Mix above ingredients together.
3 (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce
3 Tbsp. vinegar
3 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Add about 1/2 cup tomato mixture to meat. Mix well and shape into loaf. Place in baking dish and pour remaining sauce over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes, basting occasionally.
You could also put your loaf pan down inside your crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours.
Go make it.
You know you want to.
