Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 60 minutes

Servings: 6



  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 diced onion
  • 1 lightly beaten egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 8-ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup to thin sauce if necessary water
  • 3 tablespoon vinegar
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together the beef, breadcrumbs, onion, egg, salt, pepper, and 1/2 cup of the tomato sauce. Form this mixture into a loaf and place it in a shallow pan. Stir together the remaining tomato sauce, vinegar, sugar, mustard, Worcestershire and the water (if too thick). Pour this sauce over the meatloaf. Bake for 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes with the pan juices.

Cook’s Note: Try serving as a sandwich with mayonnaise.
