I love meatloaf! One of our family favorites is "Mamma's Meatloaf". My daughters just devour it. Mamma's meatloaf has been a favorite for when we have made a meal for family friends if they just had a baby, surgury, etc. My MOPS group has loved this recipe when we have delivered meals. It is a really simple recipe and good for when you are wanting to make alot, freezing it and then pulling it out for a later meal.
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup onion (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon salt
1 pound ground beef
2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup packed brown sugar (may substitute your own sweetner)
1 1/2 teaspoon mustard
In a bowl, mix egg and milk together. Stir in the cheese, oats, chopped onion, and salt. Add the beef and mix well. I personally mix all of it together with my hands so that it gets well distributed. When well mixed, shape into individual meatloaves, place in a glass baking dish.
In a separate bowl, mix ketchup, brown sugar and mustard. Make sure that the brown sugar is not too lumpy in the ketchup and mustard. Spoon the mixture over the meatloaves. The brown sugar will melt and carmelize.
Bake uncovered at 350F for 45-55 minutes. We like our meatloaves a little more well done so that the ketchup mixture caramelizes a little longer.
