Meatloaf. It can be done so well, but it can also be done horribly. I’ve had my fair share of successes and failures when it comes to meatloaves (more failures sadly), but this attempt came out really good and I’ll be making it again. I did not bake it in a loaf pan, but instead shaped mini loaves and baked them on a baking sheet. That way I was able to drain some of the fat off too.
– 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
– 1 egg
– 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
– 1/2 cup diced onion
– 2 tsp. seasoning salt
– 1 tbsp. lemon juice
– 1/4 cup ketchup
-1/4 cup brown sugar
– 2-3 tbsp. Water to dilute the mix
Preheat oven to 350F.
Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium sized bowl, combine all the meatloaf ingredients and mix well with your hands. Separate into 6 even sized balls, and shape into loaves. Place the loaves on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
While the meatloaves are baking, make the glaze. Combine the ketchup, sugar, and water in a small bowl. Stir to combine.
After the 15 minutes is up, drizzle some glaze evenly over the meatloaves and put them back into the oven. Bake for another 15 minutes.
Serve warm with mashed potatoes and veggies.
