Easy and Delicious Meatloaf

My mom used to make this meatloaf with chili sauce that she canned herself. It was so delicious. I don't have home-canned chili sauce, but have found a kind I really like at the grocery store. It comes in a cute, round jar and I think its called Home-style Chili Sauce. It works great.


2 eggs
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 14 oz. jar or can chili sauce (the chunkier, the better)
1 cup rolled oats
1 lb. lean ground beef
2 tbsp. brown sugar

Reserve about 1/4 cup chili sauce in a small bowl.


Mix together the eggs, onions, chili sauce and rolled oats until thoroughly combined. Mix in the hamburger just until mixed together. (I roll up my sleeves, and use my clean hands.) Shape and put in loaf pan.

Mix the brown sugar with the rest of the chili sauce and cover the top of the meatloaf. Cook at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Enjoy!

I love a good meatloaf recipe! This looks great and is similar to mine, with minor variations. Next time I do meatloaf I will have to try it!

I am glad this is written down. Whenever I make meatloaf I always have to improvise. I remember trying this meatloaf that you made and it was way better than my concoctions. The chili sauce and oats are different from the recipe that Leslie circulated,but they are what make it extra yummy.

Until such time... said...

I would love your mom's canned home made chili sauce recipe (and instructions). What are the chances?
