Cottage Meatloaf

Courtesy of Melissa H from

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup tomato juice (or substitute Worchestershire sauce)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup fresh bread crumbs ( I used Italian style)
1/4 cup diced onion
2 teaspoons prepared mustard

1/2 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
4 teaspoons brown sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
In a large bowl, combine ground beef, 1/2 cup ketchup, tomato juice, salt, pepper, red pepper, eggs, bread crumbs, onion and 2 teaspoons mustard until well mixed. Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with foil. Press meat mixture into pan.
In a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup ketchup, 1 teaspoon mustard and brown sugar until smooth. Spread brown sugar mixture over meatloaf.
Bake in preheated oven 35 to 45 minutes, until no longer pink. Drain off fat. Let rest 5 minutes before serving

I used a little extra mustard by accident but it tasted good anyway. This meatloaf has a nice kick.
