This past week was so-so as far as my menu plan was concerned. We had a few duds, namely the peking pork chops and the slow cooker spaghetti with pork. The big winner of the week was the Amish Meatloaf. SO GOOD! The Italian Wedding Soup was great, as usual.
Note: The glaze is optional. I use to use the meatloaf glaze on a different meatloaf recipes, one that was not quite as sweet as Amish Meatloaf. It is a sweet glaze, so use your judgement if you think you would like both a sweet glaze and a sweet tasting meatloaf.
2 pounds ground beef
2 1/2 cups crushed butter-flavored crackers
1 small onion, chopped
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp. corn syrup
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, mix together ground beef, crushed crackers, onion, eggs, 3/4 cup ketchup, and 1/4 cup brown sugar until blended. Using a buttered baking dish, mound meat mixture into a loaf shape.
3. Bake for 1 hour in the pre-heated oven, or until cooked through. Add the ketchup glaze half way through cooking.
