Mom's Meatloaf

Serves: 4-6

2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup brown sugar + 1 Tbsp.
1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
2 eggs
1/4 cup minced onion
1 cup crushed buttery crackers (Club or Ritz)
2 tsp. yellow mustard

Mix ground beef and eggs. Add 1/4 cup brown sugar and onion. Stir in the crushed crackers and 1/2 can (1/2 cup) of the tomato sauce. Mix well. Add salt and pepper as desired. Form into loaf and place in loaf pan. Mix the remaining tomato sauce with the mustard and add 1 Tbsp. brown sugar. Set aside. Bake meatloaf at 350* for 1 1/2 hours. During last 15 minutes of baking spread remaining tomato sauce mixture over the top.

My thoughts: I know everyone has a recipe for "Mom's Meatloaf" but this one surpasses them all. It's my Dad's favorite meatloaf and when he is eating the meatloaf he's already thinking about the cold meatloaf sandwich for tomorrow's lunch!

Serve it with: Grandma's Scalloped Potatoes, steamed asparagus, cooked carrots.
