Old-Fashioned Meatloaf

This meatloaf is moist and flavorful with simple ingredients. A delicious weeknight dinner - freeze the second loaf after baking for a future dinner. Adapted from "Angie's Grandma's Meatloaf", a recipe from Angie Curtis, a Personal/Private Chef in Michigan.

2 pounds ground chuck
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2/3 cup finely minced onion
5 ounces (small can) evaporated milk
2/3 cup ketchup
3/4 cup oatmeal
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon dry mustard

Preheat oven to 350°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

Mix meatloaf ingredients together well and shape into 2 freeform loaves on prepared baking sheet. Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl and cover loaves evenly. Bake for 45-55 minutes, until cooked through (160°). Let rest 10 minutes before slicing. Serves 4-6.
