Generations of Meatloaf

I have a confession...


I ♥ MEATLOAF!

Our recipe is old, really old. My Mom learned from Granny and Granny learned it from her Mother.


The concept is simple, ground beef, bread crumb or stale bread, egg, salt, pepper, parsley. Our meat mixture is pretty simple but you simply must bake it on a broiler pan. It will still be moist but doesn't get greasy like it can from baking on a regular pan where it sits in it's own fat. YUCK!

However, the most important part is the topping. No plain ketchup here, that would be boring and simply to normal for my family to use.
4 parts ketchup
1 part mustard (dry or prepared)
1 part brown sugar.
And when I'm feeling rebellious I toss in a dash of Worcestershire Sauce.
 (Shhh! Don't tell Granny she's mean for a short woman!) 

Now go! Hurry to the kitchen and show your family you love them with MEAT! What? That's not what makes your family feel all warm and fuzzy!?!?!?!? Maybe it's just my husband then... Oh well, You should try it anyway it might change you life! Okay, okay maybe not your life but at least your view of loaves of meat.
