Sweet and Sour Meatloaf

Meatloaf was never my favorite meal as a kid.  When I was dating my husband, he asked me to make a meatloaf.  I got out the trusty church cookbook and gave this one a try.  We've never looked back.  My kids have actually requested this as a birthday meal, so that's saying something!  I call this "The Meatloaf Your Kids Will Eat" (and your hubby, too!)
1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1 c. dry bread crumbs
1 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
2 eggs
1 t. instant minced onion
1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce, divided

Topping:
Reserved tomato sauce
2 T. brown sugar
2 T. vinegar
1/4—1/2 c. sugar
2 t. prepared mustard


Mix together beef, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and eggs. Add onions and one-half of tomato sauce. Form into a loaf in 9 x 5 x 3” pan. Bake at 350º for 50 minutes.

In saucepan, combine topping ingredients; bring to a boil. Pour over meatloaf; bake 10 minutes more.

Makes 6 servings
