READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Stoblogger

This is an adapted recipe from one my mother used to make. My favorite part of meatloaf was always the tangy candied topping. I hope you like this version.

I made this for a Welcome Home supper for my children, meatloaf is DD1s favourite! Very good and very easily prepared, I used ground chicken rather than turkey since it is more easily available here. It sliced very well, was soft, tender with good flavour, and I suspect the little that was left has already been eaten as breakfast! Served with katews Recipe#405943, this was a veritable feast, thank you I<3 Cookbooks! Made for Aus/NZ swap#36

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly spray a 8 x 4 x 2 1/2 inches glass loaf pan.
  3. Knead together the ground chuck and ground turkey, tomato soup (do not add water), dried minced onion, the oatmeal, the egg, and salt and black pepper.
  4. Mold the meat mixture into a loaf to fit your pan.
  5. Place the meatloaf in 350 degree oven for 50 minutes.
  6. Carefully remove the meatloaf and turn off the oven. Drain any access fat immediately if you wish.
  7. Stir together the ketchup and brown sugar and use it to glaze the top of the meatloaf.
  8. Return the meatloaf to the oven under a 500 degree broiler (or high setting) for 5 to 8 minutes. Watch carefully as it will burn quickly once the topping begins to caramelize.
  9. Remove when browned to your liking, let stand about 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
