This is a recipe my Mom always used when she made meatloaf. Use it as you would ketchup (as a topping). It is not hot...just a wee bit spicy. It is good on meatloaf or veggie loaf sandwiches. If making for a family....you may want to double recipe. I use Keen's mustard in this. If you can....grate the nutmeg....a much more pungant taste. Cooking time is resting time.
