Home Style Glazed Meatloaf

Contributed By: Parker


2 large eggs, beaten
2/3 cup 2% milk
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup crushed saltines (about 30 crackers)
1 cup finely shredded carrots
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Minced fresh parsley, optional


1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, cheese, saltines, carrots, onion, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Crumble beef over mixture and mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into a loaf. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, for 50 minutes.
2. For glaze, in a small saucepan, bring the brown sugar, ketchup and mustard to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until heated through. Spoon over meat loaf.
3. Bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until meat is no longer pink and a thermometer reads 160°. Drain; let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. If desired, top with minced fresh parsley.
