This is a great meatloaf recipe. The mushroom sauce is the best. I have doubled the recipe, split it and and will freeze the two loaves for future meals. I can defrost a meatloaf the night before to save a little time the next day. I got this recipe out of the Cuisine At Home magazine and is always asked for the recipe by friends.

Sweet and sour ketchup

- Stir ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar together in a bowl, then spoon on top of the meatloaf. Bake until meatloaf reaches 160°F on an instant read thermometer, about 1 hour. Let rest at least 5 minutes before slicing.
- Mushroom Sherry Sauce:.
- Fry bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate and return pan with drippings to the burner. Add mushrooms, shallots, and saute until mushrooms are browned, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour and tomato paste; cook 1 minute.
- Deglaze with sherry and simmer until evaporated. Gradually add brother, scraping up brown bits from the bottom of the pan. bring to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Finish sauce with reserved bacon, butter, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Serve with meatloaf.
I saw this recipe in Cuisine at Home, and I tried it. I thought it was one of the better meat loaf recipes I've tried, although I did skip the mushroom sauce (picky eaters in my house). Maybe next time I'll try the mushroom sauce!
