Great for a Cold, Snowy Evening

Last night for dinner I made meatloaf with a new recipe. My family gave it a thumbs up. It was the perfect meal for a cold, snowy evening.

Traditional Meatloaf

1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup milk
3 slices of bread, crumbled
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tbsp prepared mustard

In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into loaf. Place in a greased 9x5x3 loaf pan.

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, ketchup and mustard; spread over loaf. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-75 minutes or until no pink remains. Drain. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

* I served this with baked potatoes, corn and Poppy Seed bread. YUM!

    Becki got me hooked on the topping recipe. Just the right touch of sweet and tart together.

    Tell my boys hi – and Grammie Pam loves them!
