    Some1sGrandma's Note:

    This is the result of changes I had to make to a recipe I got from the Zaar. It was very good and I would like to be able to duplicate it again.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8-12

    Yield:

    loaves

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325.
    2. 2
      In a very large bowl put hamburger, crackers crumbled,salt, essence, boullion powder, and black pepper - set aside.
    3. 3
      Cut onion into larger pieces and put it in the food processor with the garlic -- pulse until pieces are small. Dump onion mixture into the bowl with the meat.
    4. 4
      Beat the three eggs (in the food processor if you don't want to dirty a bowl) and add them to the meat bowl.
    5. 5
      Add the tomato sauce to the meat bowl and use your hands to mix all very well (I like to wear rubber gloves to save on clean-up time).
    6. 6
      Divide meat mixture in half. Form into two loaves on the botton of your broiler pan or a roasting pan. Leave room between loaves for even baking.
    7. 7
      In smaller bowl mix together with a fork; ketchup, brown sugar, water, mustard and cider vinegar. This is your topping -- Brush tops and sides of loaves with this before baking and again while baking.
    8. 8
      Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 25 minutes.
    9. 9
      When I remove the pan from the oven I like to pour off the excess oil in the bottom of the pan. Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving. Slice thick and pieces should hold together well.

      We all loved it! My son, picky-picky on Zaar (10 yrs.) said "This is a great meatloaf" so I hope he rates it himself (he's doing homework now). DH loved it, my growing 13 year old loved it and I loved it. I thought your directions were great. I followed everything except for less mustard (I used a tsp.) for the glaze. I also added the glaze by brushing it on after a half an hour or so. I basted it a few times. It was nice placing the loaves on my broiler pan. Thank you for a great meatloaf that I will make again!

      I loved this meatloaf and give it five stars. However, I didn't really care for the topping sauce. Next time I will make as specified, but use my own topping for this. See Tony's Meatloaf Sauce for ingredients.
