Family Favorites

This week's family favorite is a ground beef dish. Actually, I use whatever is on sale, be it ground beef or ground turkey. Either is delicious!!

DS is a very picky eater when it comes to meat and he will devour this!

Hope you give this a try and enjoy it!

If you do decide to give it a try, let me know what you think!

Brown Sugar Glazed Meatloaf

½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup ketchup
1½ pounds ground beef (or turkey)
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1½ teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 small onion, chopped
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 cup crushed saltine cracker crumbs

Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. Lightly grease a 5x9-inch loaf pan. Press the brown sugar in the bottom of the prepared loaf pan and spread the ketchup over the sugar.

In a mixing bowl, combine all remaining ingredients thoroughly and shape into a loaf. Place on top of the ketchup mixture. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour or until juices are clear.

** I will also stick some potatoes in the oven to bake while the meatloaf is baking. Add a salad and some fresh bread...YUMM!!!

I love meatloaf but my sweet fella doesn't really care for it. I bet he would eat this with the brown sugar ! Looks great!

My hubbie loves meatloaf!! I'm always looking for a new way to try it - I think I would use ground turkey! I'll let you know when we try it!
