Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Author Stefanie Fauquet


  • 1.5 lbs. ground beef
  • 3/4 cup oats (quick or old fashioned
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup onion finely diced
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Combine all ingredients (excluding topping ingredients) into a medium bowl. Using clean hands, mix the ingredients just until incorporated. Overmixing may result in a tougher meatloaf.

  3. Transfer meat to a loaf pan, and press the surface until it’s even.

  4. Mix topping ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over the top of the meatloaf, and spread evenly over the surface.

  5. Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes.

  6. Remove from oven and drain off excess grease. You may need to spread the topping once more after draining, so it evenly covers the surface.

  7. Allow the meatloaf to cool for up to 10 minutes before serving.
