The BEST Meatloaf

Fishmama is having a "Where's the Beef" Ultimate Recipe Swap and I thought I'd contribute our favorite meat loaf recipe. When the kids know this is being made they cheer in anticipation. It is THAT good!! I think the sauce on top is what makes this meatloaf the BEST meatloaf.

Traditional Meat Loaf

1 egg, lightly beaten
2/3 cup milk
3 slices bread, crumbled
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1-1/2 pounds ground beef

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon prepared mustard

In a large bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture
and mix well. Shape into a loaf. Place in a greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. In
a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, ketchup and mustard; spread over loaf.
Bake at 350° for 60-75 minutes or until no pink remains and a meat
thermometer reads 160°. Drain. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

Yield: 6 servings
