I have had a heck of time to get meatloaf just right. It is either too dry and crusty or too moist and had a gross texture. However last night when I made it is was just perfect. The boys LOVED it too. I served with a side of couscous, which they gobbled up too.
Easy Moist Meatloaf
adapted from: Catholic Mom Cookbook
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 cup bread crumbs (fresh definitely would be better)
1 1/2 t onion powder (or 1 onion, chopped)
1 1/2 t garlic powder
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
1 (8oz) tomato sauce
3 T cider vinegar
3 T sugar
2 T mustard
2 t Worcestershire sauce
Mix beef, crumbs, seasonings, tomato sauce and egg together. Place in a shallow dish (pie pan worked well). Mix sauce ingredients in another bowl. Pour over meatloaf. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours. (Next time I might cover it for a bit with foil and bake 15minutes longer) Perfection!
