From Tim and Karla Pazour
- 2 lb. ground beef
- 1 cup loosely torn bread (like day-old hot dog bun)
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. pepper
- 1 tsp. sage
- 1 egg
- Topping: 1/3 cup brown sugar; 1/2 cup ketchuip, 2 T. mustard, 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- Garnish: Fresh grated parmesan
Soak bread in milk - add onion, seasonings and egg. Combine well. Loosely incorporae ground beef - do not overmix or you will have dense meatloaf. In 9x13 or larger greased casserole gently pat meatloaf mixture into pan. Combine topping ingredients and spread on top. Bake at 350 F for one hour.
Garnish with grated parmesan.
To make it into an easy appetizer, add a second egg to the meatloaf mixture and when ready to serve, cut into bite-size squares and insert a pretzel stick for a handle.
