Amish Meatloaf

Amish Meatloaf

2 lbs. ground beef
2 1/2 cups crushed crackers (I use crushed bread crumbs)
1 small onion, chopped
2 eggs
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
2 Tbls. vinegar
3/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbls. mustard
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 slices of bacon (optional)

*Heat oven to 350 degrees

*In a medium bowl, mix together ground beef, crushed crackers, onion, eggs, 3/4 cup ketchup & 1/4 cup brown sugar until well blended.

*Shape into loaf. (I use a 9x13 baking dish & add bacon on top as an option)

*Bake for 1 hour.

*While the meatloaf is baking, mix together remaining 1 cup ketchup, vinegar, salt, mustard & 1/2 brown sugar. (I usually cup these ingredients in half.)

*After an hour of baking, spread mixture over the top of the meat loaf and bake for an additional 15 minutes.Sarah picked the beautiful tulip from the front yard.

Luv meatloaf!
Looks great.
I've never put vinegar in mine before, but think I'll try this and see what happens.
Think I will fix this for supper tonight. There's ground beef in the fridge.
You've encouraged me with your blog!!!
God Bless.

I grew up in Lancaster PA- and have some Amish friends. This meatloaf is what I grew up eating as a little girl.

They are truly a beautiful culture!
