Mom's Meatloaf

I have always loved my mom's meatloaf.  It's a pretty basic meatloaf recipe but it's the sauce on top that makes it special.

Basic Meatloaf
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 egg white
1/2 cup minced yellow onion
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. italian seasoning
1 tsp worcestershire sauce

Heat oven to 375.  Remove jewelry and mash all these ingredients together using your hands.  Mold, push down into a loaf pan.  Bake at 375 for 50 mins.

The Sauce
1/3 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

Mix all sauce ingredients together while meatloaf is cooking.  Stir well.  Give brown sugar a chance to dissolve a little.  When meatloaf is done, pull it out.  Spread sauce over the top of the meatloaf.  Return meatloaf to the 375 oven for 12 mins.  Pull meatloaf out when finished let it rest 5 mins. before slicing it.
