Cottage Meat Loaf

I got this recipe when I was in high school. It is still my favorite. It is the only meatloaf my husband likes.

What you will need:

1 1/2 lbs. lean ground beef
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup tomato juice
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. red pepper
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tsp. mustard


1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp. mustard
2 tsp. brown sugar

In a large bowl mix all ingredients except ground beef. Add ground beef. Mix gently but thoroughly.

Now, you can add this to any pan you want. A loaf pan means a longer cooking time. I usually put the meat in a circular baking stone and make a wreath shape out of the meat. You can do it in any pan you would like. Spread topping on top.

Bake at 400 degrees until no longer pink in the middle.

We need to have meat loaf again soon. I love this recipe because the meat loaf isn't too dense but it also isn't mushy.
