This was really good. I doubled the recipe, and we had leftovers for the next day or two. I think that the next time I make it, however, I will use about half the sugar. Probably just use the brown sugar. It was a little too sweet for our tastes. Didn't go too well with bread for meatloaf sandwiches, when it was so sweet. The salt and everything else, is just the perfect amount for flavor. It tasted a lot like mine, except I use stewed tomatoes that have been pureed, instead of milk, and we have never done it with a sweet topping, just catsup alone. I have eaten the sweet kind, and have always liked it. But I will tone the sugar down a little next time. Great recipe!

For the sauce, when I had posted it, I had doubled the recipe, and some found it too much. So please cut everything in half... my family doesn''t eat much of the sauce when it''s first served,they love it when scraped off the top of the meatloaf and spread on the bread for cold meatloaf sandwiches, while my husband likes it spread on a thick slice of hot meatloaf and mashed potatoes

Ingredients of this recipe suggested that the flavor & texture of the loaf would be lacking and sweetness of the topping overwhelming. But because meatloaf is a favorite dish of mine the 5 star rating given this recipe challenged me to try it. I cut the sugar for the topping by a third. Still, I found the topping sickeningly sweet & the texture and bland flavor unimpressive.
