I grew up having meat loaf fairly often at my home and I liked but, my husband, not so much. So when we were first married and I made it for him he was not impressed. So I searched for a meatloaf recipe he would like. I found this one on Allrecipes.com years ago it is the highest rated meatloaf recipe on there and for good reason. When I read the words sweet glaze I knew I would have him hooked. I have made a few modifications to the original recipe over the years, for example they said to put the glaze on the bottom, but I find it is much better on top. Try it out and surprise a meatloaf hater out there how good and sweet it can be....
“This tasty meatloaf flavored with ginger, has a sweet brown sugar and ketchup glaze.”
