Brown Sugar Meatloaf

This is a fantastic meatloaf recipe that we really enjoyed with some Parmesan potatoes and green beans for a wonderful and filling dinner. The only change I made to the original recipe is splitting the brown sugar glaze half on the bottom, half on top. The sauce is delicious, and the texture of the meatloaf is tender and perfect! It was great and I will definitely be using this again!! My son gave this two thumbs up and wanted to eat the rest of the meatloaf straight from the pan I think.

All the ingredients, ready to go!
