Comfort Food...

Easy Meatloaf:
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 egg
1 onion chopped
1 cup milk
1 cup dried bread crumbs (I used good wheat bread toasted and finely crumbled)
1 T Worcestershire sauce
dash garlic powder

2 T brown sugar
2 T prepared Mustard
2/3 C ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine beef, egg, onion, milk, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce & garlic powder in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Place in a lightly greased 5X9 loaf pan.
In a separate small bowl, combine brown sugar, mustard & ketchup. Mix well and poor over meatloaf.
Bake for 1 hour and 20 min.

I like to serve this with green salad, steamed broccoli and yellow garden squash. And, I like to quarter some new red potatoes and put them in a ceramic covered dish which I place in the oven beside the meatloaf and then add a touch of butter and some parsley flakes.
