Unlike Kid President, we love meatloaf – especially this one. Tender and moist with a sweet and savory topping, it makes a great weeknight dinner and awesome leftovers.
This is adapted from a recipe we came across years ago in the Hints from Heloise syndicated column in our local newspaper.
What you’ll need:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon mustard
Dash tobasco sauce
3/4 cup ketchup
2 pounds extra lean ground beef
2/3 cup gluten free cracker crumbs (We make our own crumbs from EnerG or Glutino Table Crackers)
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
What you’ll do:
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In small bowl, mix together brown sugar, mustard, tobasco, and ¼ cup ketchup. Set aside.
In large bowl, mix together ground beef, egg, cracker crumbs, milk, onion, spices, and ½ cup ketchup.
Spoon the mixture into a loaf pan and pour ketchup mixture over top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.

Yum! This one will be a keeper and i’m going to give it a try as soon as possible. Thank you 😀
You’re welcome. It’s a great comfort food – especially with mashed potatoes!
This looks so good (and I’m assuming it is)
I am going to make this and have you guys
come for supper sometime. Can I use fresh
red peppers instead of the flakes? and how
important is it to have to use tabbasco ?
Can’t spell it..
Would love to come to dinner! No you don’t really need the tobasco or the pepper flakes. They just add a little spicy heat.
Such a cute video!
Thanks. I love that one!
LOVED the Mom video, great way to start the morning and the meatloaf looks like a great way to start the evening!
Thanks. We love the video too – one of our favorites!
Sounds delicious. 🙂 I love meatloaf but most of my family agrees with the kid president.
Tell them this one is more meaty and less loafy 🙂
Oh, and I apologize in advance for the pumpkin in the next post.
