Mom's Meatloaf

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by lisar

Lot's of meatloaf recipes out there, but what makes this one different is the brown sugar/soy sauce glaze that cooks over the top. This is my mom's recipe and I haven't found one better than hers. I had submitted it to the local newspaper a couple of years ago. Yesterday I ran into a lady and after the introductions she asked me if I was the one who had submitted a meatloaf recipe to the paper a few years back. I was stunned that she would associate a stranger with a recipe. Anyway she said that their family has really enjoyed it and they have given the recipe to all of their friends and they all love it. Wow, so I thought I would submit this one more meatloaf recipe so I coud spread the joy. Ha!

It was eatable...but the texture was very similar to basic hamburger. The flavor was not very interesting either. Though the biggest problem, was there were no time for cooking. Both my DH and my oldest DS are picky meatloaf eaters, though they did eat it, they did not like it. Usually my DH suggest that I make improvements, this time he just asked me to forget this recipe.
