Easy Meatloaf

I’ve made a few different meatloaf recipes over the years in my tiny kitchen. Our favorite has always been Persian Meatloaf, but this one may just be our new favorite.

It’s simple to put together, and the combination of ketchup, mustard and brown sugar gives it a sweet and tangy glaze that is absolutely delicious.

I opted to bake this in a baking dish, as I find that meatloaves are less greasy and get nice and caramelized all around when they aren’t in a loaf pan. It was incredibly moist and reheated well for the next few days. Definitely a keeper!

      Thank you! I was planning on making meatloaf sandwiches, but it disappeared too quickly to bother with all the bread 😉

      Yeah, I do like green bell peppers in it, too. But this one didn’t involve cooking anything on the stovetop ahead of popping it into oven, which was necessary since I didn’t have a working stovetop 😉
