This is my sister-in-law's recipe for meatloaf. She shared with me for a family cookbook. It is sweet so you might want to cut back some on the brown sugar, I only use about 3/4 cup. Hope you enjoy it

This was a good recipe but I was surprised at how sweet it was. We liked it but I think my family prefers something that tastes more like beef! I might try it again without the brown sugar topper. Thank you!

My family loves meatloaf and rated this five stars. I used a meatloaf mix which my grocery sells (veal, pork and ground chuck) instead of the 2 lbs of ground chuck. It was delicious. Thanks Luvin for this recipe. It's a keeper in my book.
