Easy meatloaf recipe.

1 lb ground beef
1 egg
3/4 cup bread crumbs(or oatmeal)
(dash or two) Worchestire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste.
1 cup milk

1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp mustard ( i added an extra 1 tbsp roughly of mustard to mine)
2 tbsp brown sugar
Dash worchestire sauce (optional)
1 tsp honey (optional)

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Saute onion in butter until soft. Mix beef, egg, bread crumbs, milk, sauce, salt & pepper. Place in greased 5x9 or other small loaf pan. Mix topping ingredients and pour on top of meatloaf. Bake approx. 1 hour at 350. 

    This recipe turned out really yummy. The best thing about it is you can do whatever you want with it and it still tastes good. Sometimes I don't have honey so I don't bother putting it in. Or I use it and not brown sugar. Adding another 1/2 lb of meat sometimes makes the texture a little nicer depending on the amount of bread crumbs you use. If you prefer it rather meaty you can add more beef or just cut down on the bread crumbs. At our house I tend to divide our meat into 1lb servings so when I thaw them out its just easier for me to only make it with 1lb at a time. You can pretty much throw anything in this and it will turn out just fine. Also the prep time for this is seriously 10-15 min max. It is super fast. At our house this usually give us plenty of left overs for the next night. 

   I have been looking for more stuff to make at home and this was an excellent find I found a recipe and then made it the way I wanted to lol. I tend to do that. I don't enjoy following recipes perfectly. Where is the fun in that? Always happy for new suggestions so drop by with any ideas.
