Meat Loaf: Yes, Virginia, There Is a Great Meat Loaf!

This is absolutely delicious meat loaf and sauce. Those who claim they don’t believe there can be such a thing as a great meat loaf will love this. A second batch of sauce served hot is good to serve with the meat loaf.

Meat Loaf: Yes, Virginia, There Is a Great Meat Loaf!

For the Meatloaf

  • 1½ pounds ground beef ((ground shoulder roast is good))
  • 1 slice bread (torn or chopped finely)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small Vidalia onion (or other type of sweet onion, such as Walla Walla) (finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • ½ to ⅔ cup milk or half-and-half

For the Sauce

  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons firmly packed, dark brown sugar
  • ½ cup ketchup
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine the meat loaf ingredients in a large bowl; stir them gently so as not to compact the mixture too much. Place the mixture into a loaf-shaped baking dish, patting it so the sides of the mixture don’t quite touch the sides of the pan. Smooth out the top.
  3. Combine the sauce ingredients, varying the amount of brown sugar according to your taste, and pour the sauce over the top and sides of the meat loaf.
  4. Bake for 1 to 1¼ hours, or until the meat loaf is nicely browned; there should not be juices pooled in the pan by this point.
