Cooking Tips

  • If you prefer a runnier sauce then simply place some foil over the top of the meatloaf for the first 30 minutes. Once the 30 minutes is up, remove the foil and allow it thicken slightly.
  • One thing you can do if you like a sweeter sauce is to add more brown sugar to the recipe.
  • If you have the time, I recommended adding some onion and garlic to this easy meatloaf recipe. Personally, I would add one diced onion and two teaspoons of crushed garlic and slightly cook these before adding it to the ground beef mix.
