Brown Sugar Meatloaf

I hate the word meatloaf. Don't you? 

Either way, I decided to try a new recipe last night. I found the recipe on allrecipes.com, but made a few changes from the original recipe based on the suggestions other users made. This is a fairly simple recipe to follow. Mix ingredients for the topping together. Mix the rest of the ingredients together and put it in the oven. I think this would be a great weeknight dinner with a vegetable side or two. The meatloaf had a great flavor and I'll make this one again!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
   *(I used minced ginger in the jar. Can be found by the minced garlic in the grocery store.)
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup plain breadcrumbs

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 5X9 loaf pan.
2. In a small bowl, mix sugar, ketchup, and Worcestershire together.
3. In a mixing bowl, mix thoroughly all remaining ingredients and shape into a loaf.  Spoon the ketchup mixture on top of the loaf.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour or until juices are clear.
