Glazed Meatloaf

I like comfort food like meatloaf
and don't make it often enough.
I have several recipes and this is the easiest one
because there is little prep work;
no chopping, just mix, shape and bake.
Serving my Easy Scalloped Potatoes for the side. 
It can bake along with the meatloaf.
I use my handy scale to measure out the 
ground beef. Gather all the ingredients.
Combine all the ingredients except the meat and
 let it sit to absorb. Then mix in the meat.
Shape into a loaf and put in a shallow casserole.
*You can prepare it ahead to this point and just
cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate 
to glaze and bake later. 
Combine the glaze ingredients.
Spread the glaze all over the loaf.
Bake about 1 hour. 
You'll want to save some leftover slices
 for sandwiches the next day. 
Warmed or cold slices of meatloaf on toast 
with your choice of mustard or more ketchup.


2 lbs ground beef
3 slices dry bread or 1/2 C breadcrumbs
salt and pepper
2 eggs
1/2 C milk
1/2 C ketchup
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
Combine the crumbled bread in a large bowl
 with the milk. Let sit for 5 minutes to
 soften the bread. OR just use the
breadcrumbs, Add the milk, and eggs; stir
 in the ketchup and soup mix to combine.
Add the ground beef and mix well. 
Shape into a loaf in a shallow casserole.
Top with glaze mixture spreading to coat.
 Bake @ 350 for 1 hour. 
Glaze Mixture
1/2 C ketchup
2 T brown sugar
1 T mustard
