A hearty, country meatloaf tastes great on a cold day.

I modified this recipe from my Swedish Meatballs recipe. It was really good as a Meatloaf. It is also very tasty the next day, cold on a sandwich.

Serves 6-8

1 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 small onion (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Mix beef, pork, bread crumbs, milk, egg, onion, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Shape it into a loaf and place it in a loaf pan to bake.


1/2 cup catsup
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon yellow mustard

Mix all three ingredients together and spread this mixture on top of the meatloaf. Bake the meatloaf for about 1 hour and 15 minutes at 350F degrees.



About Lois

My husband, Don Crawford, and I love to cook. For me, it's more about eating delicious food than the actual cooking. I like to cook mostly because I like to eat, and I like the proud sense of accomplishment when the food I make is appreciated by others. For Don, it's all about presentation. So we make a good team. I'm too impatient to create beautiful presentations (usually), but he sweeps in and takes over so it all turns out great. All our recipes are tried and true!
