Brown Sugar Meatloaf


I’ve tried more than one meatloaf recipe in my lifetime and I have found one that my family absolutely loves.   Personally, I give this a 5 star rating but I’ll let you be the judge of that.


  • 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. ketchup
  • 1-1/2 lbs. ground beef
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 c. finely crushed saltine cracker crumbs
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lightly grease a 5×9-inch loaf pan.
  3. Press the brown sugar in the bottom of the prepared loaf pan and spread the ketchup over the sugar.
  4. In a mixing bowl, mix thoroughly all remaining ingredients and shape into a loaf.
  5. Place on top of ketchup.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour or until juices are clear.

Optional:  I use diced green bell peppers and instead of using a small onion, I use
McCormick’s onion flakes.  I have a habit of not measuring so use as
much as desired.
