it's a meatloaf kind of thing

Pin It

Never in a million years did I think I would do this.

Not even in a thousand.

I mean, after all, I am not a cook.


I don't like to be in the kitchen.

I don't like to clean up after the cooking mess.

I don't like to figure out what to make for dinner.

Meatloaf on the way into the oven.
The top is the ketchup/brown sugar mix.
Just spread over the top like frosting.
So why did I do it?

Why did I write a post about making meatloaf?

Maybe because I realized that, even though I don't like to cook, I really have some pretty good recipes.

For certain my boys rave about them. That is, most of the time.

Well this time, I decided to share my meatloaf recipe because, "it's a meatloaf kind of thing."

hamburger (3-4 lbs)
italian bread crumbs (can also use oats, crushed saltine crackers) (approx. 1 cup)
Dried onion
eggs (usually 2)

Mix all together and put in a glass baking pan.

Then, mix ketchup and brown sugar. No, I don't have the measurements because I don't cook that way. I just dump!

Yup, I'm a dumpy kind of cook!

But seriously, you dump in some brown sugar, add a bunch of ketchup, mix together so it makes kind of a loose past and pour over top of meatloaf.

Delicious meatloaf with a crusty topping!

Bake at 350 for about an hour until done.

The ketchup brown sugary topping thingy will be kind of crusty and sticky on top.
