Mom's Meatloaf

I have been trying various meatloaf recipes for the last few years.  This one is by far the front runner!  My oldest son even said "huh, I didn't even know I liked meatloaf."  I will take that as a compliment and mark it down as a keeper.  I know that most people say they just throw whatever in to make a meatloaf, but that doesn't work for me here. Most of the time I can throw things together and it turns our great, meatloaf is a whole different ball game...until now!
  • 1 1/2 lbs of Ground Beef
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dried Parsley
  • 1 egg (lightly beaten)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup stove top
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
Serves 6

In a small food processor place about a 1/2 bag of Stove Top stuffing mix and pulse a few times to make it so the crumbs are a little smaller.  In a large bowl combine parsley, egg, milk, garlic powder, salt, pepper, Dijon mustard, onion powder and Worcestershire sauce.  When those are mixed together, stir in the Stove Top crumbs.  Last, add in the ground beef and gently mix it all together with our hands.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the glaze ingredients.  Divide glaze in half and reserve one half for dipping after it has been cooked.

Place ground beef mixture into loaf pan and lightly brush on glaze.  Bake for 35-40 minutes at 400 degrees.

I served with Mashed Potatoes and Peas of course!
