Brown sugar and ketchup make this meatloaf an amazing treat for the whole family!


1 package Ground Beef; (We use Market Ground Beef)
1/2 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Eggs
1/3 cup crushed saltines
1 small onion
1/4 tsp ginger
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



In a 5x9 greased pan mix the brown sugar and ketchup. In a separate bowl mix all other ingredients and add a bit more ketchup (just a squeeze or so). Mix it up and add it to the top of the brown sugar and ketchup. Bake for 1 hour at 350.


Make sure the juices run clear when done. Check the middle to make sure it is consistent with the sides.

My son is a very picky eater but he LOVES this. He's always asking me to make it. It's a very delicious recipe!

So good!! But a quick note... When you say "1 package" of ground beef, I'm guessing now that that's some other form than a pound?? Because I've only ever seen ground beef in 1 or 2 pound packages, except for giant value packs. 1 pound was definitely not right for this... I doctored with a bunch more crackers (I used reduced fat Ritz) and some Panko, and finally got it out of the soupy consistency it was in, lol. Added in some Worcestershire as well. Was afraid it was going to be awful, but it came out SO good!! Will definitely make again, but will use 2 pounds of ground beef. :-)

I never made meatloaf before. And I am definitely not meatloaf fan. This was very easy to make. I used Ritz crackers instead of saltines and I sprinkled a little bit of dried parsley flakes on top before popping it in the oven. Will make again
