Meatloaf is a comfort food classic, but this version puts a bit of a spin on the original. Adding brown sugar to the ketchup mixture adds a gentle hint of sweetness as well as a richness from the caramelization that occurs naturally in the oven. It's sure to become a new favorite.
Aside from flavor, one issue that folks often have with meatloaf is the texture. Meatloaf can easily become overly dry, an issue that this version overcomes by using milk-soaked bread and moisture-rich onion and carrot in the meat mixture. An added bonus? You sneak a serving of veggies into dinner.
