Tonight we are having brown sugar glazed meatloaf for supper. As I mentioned in this post, it’s one of our family’s favourite meals. Because we process our beef, I usually have a frozen hamburger on hand to thaw out and use, but my freezer is looking a little empty right now. So I used 93% lean ground beef, which I find is best for meatloaf to prevent it from drowning in grease.
I always like to serve this brown sugar glazed meatloaf with a baked potato or some type of cheesy potato. I have some Chives in the garden that are really thriving in the rainy summer that we’ve been having that will be great on our potatoes.
My family is really picky about eating leftovers so usually I try to only prepare what we will eat at that meal, but meatloaf is one of the few leftovers they love. So it’s a great meal to make in the summer while the kiddos don’t have school.
The products I use are things that I always have on hand.
I like to mix everything but the brown sugar, ketchup, and ground beef before adding the ground beef.
Once it’s all mixed together you don’t even notice the extra stuff mixed in. Sometimes I double up the brown sugar and ketchup for the glaze because it’s always the best part. Enjoy making this brown sugar glazed meatloaf.
