For the meatloaf:

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2-2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 3/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried rosemary

For the mashed potatoes:

  • 4 Russet potatoes peeled and cut into 3 inch pieces
  • 4 tbsp salted butter
  • milk and/or cream as need
  • salt


For meatloaf:

  • Heat oven to 350.
  • Mix together brown sugar, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce in small bowl. I double this sauce usually, so that there is extra for serving.
  • In a mixing bowl mix all remaining ingredients. Shape into a loaf and place on foil lined sheet pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Spread enough of the ketchup mixture on the top to generously cover the loaf. Allow it to drop down the side.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour - 1.25 hours until center is 165 degrees. I prefer to shape and cook loaf on a sheet pan vs a loaf pan bc it allows the fat to run off and let’s the glaze cook all over the whole outside. It devotedly improves meatloaf to cook it this way. Allow to cool slightly and cut into slices.

For the potatoes:

  • Place potatoes in a large pan of water and bring to a boil. Cook 20-25 minutes until fork tender.
  • Drain and mash potatoes with a masher. Add the butter and salt and cream or milk to taste, until you have a creamy consistency.
