How to make Glazed Meatloaf


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine ketchup, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, dry mustard, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice until smooth.
  3. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground Italian sausage, bread crumbs, beefy onion soup mix, egg, minced garlic, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, and ¼ cup of the glaze mixture until well mixed. Form into a loaf and place in a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  4. Bake 1 hour. Pour off fat. Pour half of the remaining glaze mixture over loaf. Bake 10 minutes more.
  5. Slice loaf into eighths, and serve. Use remaining glaze mixture to drizzle on meatloaf slices or to dip slices into while eating.


  • Draining the fat from the hot pan can be difficult. An alternative that I frequently use is to line the bottom of the loaf pan with four slices of sandwich bread in two layers (two slices side by side, topped with another two slices side by side) before placing the raw meatloaf in it. These bread slices then absorb the fat that normally has to be drained. The fat-soaked bread can then be removed and discarded from each slice of meatloaf as you take it out of the pan.
  • For a healthier meatloaf, substitute lean ground turkey for the ground beef and lean ground Italian turkey sausage for the sausage. Anna and I can't even tell any difference in taste and it cuts out a ton of the fat.
  • Anna and I usually serve this with mashed sweet potatoes (we use Ore-Ida Steam n' Mash) along with either a green salad or steamed asparagus. They all go great together.
