Meatloaf is one of my favorite dishes, and I am always looking for new recipes. This past week, for three days, we were keeping grandchildren for my son and daughter-in-love to go to a conference, and we decided to stay over for the weekend to go to church.
At the end of the week, Brandy was deciding what to have for dinner. She was looking through her cookbook that her friends had compiled for her of their favorite recipes, and she decided to make this delicious meatloaf recipe. I have always just put ketchup on the top of my meatloaf, but I must say the combination of the brown sugar and the ketchup together was very tasty.
She served this meatloaf with a salad and Mashed Faux-tatoes, which I have heard of, but I have never had. They are ends to a means to serve if you cannot have potatoes. My husband enjoyed them so much.
