Susan's Sweet and Tangy Meatloaf

Susan's Sweet and Tangy Meatloaf created by lazyme

I snagged the basic recipe for this from AllRecipes.com but have changed it a great deal to suit my family's tastes. My husband is not a fan of meatloaf but BEGS for this one, as do my 2 and 4 year old. It's super easy and can be made early in the day and then just spread the sauce on top and bake. It's sweet, tangy and a bit spicy! I bet everyone will ask for seconds!

    Has anyone tried this with turkey meat? Sounds really good but I think I will try with turkey meat.

    We loved this! I will decrease the brown sugar next time! I may add in some onions next time.

    Simple and delicious, I did some amount adjustments and added in some cayenne pepper, I used seasoned salt and lots fresh ground black pepper, I also used spicy ketchup for topping, I made this for the Pink event, thanks for sharing Chicago, this will be enjoyed for dinner tonight!

    I really enjoyed this recipe. Easy to make, and I loved how the meatloaf stayed together well after it was cooked--didn't fall apart when I tried to slice it (that always happens to me!) I liked the sweeter sauce, but hubby said he thought it was too sweet. But he liked the meatloaf otherwise. Next time, will put the sauce on half the meatloaf and make his ol' side plain. Thanks for sharing.
