Very Tasty Meatloaf

This recipe comes from A Kitchen Bouquet from Grace Gourmets. It's a church cookbook from Grace Community Church in Panorama City, Ca. (John MacArthur is pastor there). We attended this church in the mid seventies so that's how old the book is. We have always enjoyed this meatloaf because it turns out moist.

Meat Loaf ingredients:
  • 1-1/2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 ounces tomato sauce
  • 1 onion chopped

  • 4 ounces tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons mustard (any variety prepared)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar or molasses

  1. Mix the first 7 meat loaf ingredients and shape into 2 equal loaves. 
  2. Combine the sauce ingredients and pour half of the sauce over the loaves. 
  3. Reserve the rest of the sauce for basting occasionally while meat is baking. 
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/2 hour, basting every half hour.

If you'd like to experiment mix in some of the sauce to the meat before you form it into a loaf...
Serve with your favorite Meat loaf accompaniments! We like to have it with mashed potatoes and salad.
