Sweet Glazed Meatloaf

The wind is out of control right now.  Trick or treating was postponed because of this "storm".  Thank goodness because if I would have had to pass out candy, I wouldn't have been able to take this horrible picture.  I need a camera.  Seriously.  That probably wouldn't have helped this picture though.  It's meatloaf.  I know what you're thinking.  Meatloaf, Aimee??  Seriously? Let me tell you.  I am super serious about this.  It's not the dry, plain old ketchup covered meatloaf from the 50's and 60's.  This meatloaf has sage.  And a delicious sweet glaze.

My mom and I found this recipe several years ago in a Harrison County Extension Agency Homemakers Cookbook.  I've made some changes but believe me, it is good.  It's the complete opposite of dry.  In fact it kind of melts a little.  Just trust me on this.

Maybe this picture does it more justice.  Regardless.  It's delicious and makes a mean sandwich for lunch the next day!

Sweet Glazed Meatloaf


1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup milk
2/3 cup oats
2/3 cup onion, finely diced
1/2 tablespoon sage
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt

For the glaze:

4 tablespoons ketchup
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon mustard
1/2 nutmeg

In a mixing bowl combine milk, oats, onion, sage, egg and salt.  Add ground beef and mix well.  Pat into loaf pan.

Combine the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and nutmeg.  Cover the meatloaf with the glaze.  Bake in a 375 degree oven for 55 to 65 minutes.

Let rest for about 10 minutes after removing from the oven.

*you may want to double the glaze
