I have made this meatloaf for years, and my family and friends just love. One day while thumbing through my cookbooks I discovered a recipe with this delicious topping. Have made it like this ever since. Recently made with the addition on 1/2 large onion (or 1 medium) chopped.
- 2 lbs beef (or beef and pork combination)
- 6 slices bread, processed fine (I use Italian Style bread crumbs)
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon parsley
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 garlic clove (minced)
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon mustard
- 1⁄4 cup catsup
- Mix all ingredients together as listed.
- Put into glass Pyrex casserole dish.
- Mix topping ingredients together and spread over top of meat, covering completely.
- Bake@ 350 degrees for 1 hour.
I'm giving this 4 stars because I personally thought the glaze was too sweet. My husband loved it as is. It's a good meatloaf, not spicy, but not overpowering, either. Nice texture. Good for leftover sandwiches, too! :) Next time I'll put the glaze on half, and leave half plain. Also, you say you substitute bread crumbs for the sliced bread, but you don't specify how much you use. I used 1 cup of italian bread crumbs, and it was just the right amount. Thanks for sharing.
A great twist on meatloaf! I really liked the sauce, I doubled it and was glad I did! I also used one cup of plain breadcrumbs, to which I added Italian seasoning. My husband loved it, and he can be a tough critic!
This is my first ever review. I've made 3 or 4 differnt recipes of meatloaf and this, BY FAR, was the best one. The only departure I made from the original recipe was that I cooked it in a crock pot for 8 1/2 hours. UNBELIEVABLE!! I have two of the pickiest eaters on earth in my house (a 5 year old and a 7 year old boy) and they were asking for seconds. Make it, love it, relish in the compliments. Well done dojemi.
