How to Make Classic Meatloaf With Sticky Sauce
Step 1: Prepare the oven or grill and preheat to 350 degrees F. Using parchment paper or foil, line a baking sheet for easy clean-up.
Step 2: Place the bread crumbs and milk in a small bowl. Mix well until combined.
Step 3: In a large saute pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Then, add the onions and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes, stirring often until aromatic and slightly browned. Adjust the heat to low and toss in the garlic. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Set them aside to cool.
Step 4: Place the ground beef, egg, and soaked bread crumbs with the milk, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, salt, and the cooked onions and garlic in a large bowl. Mix using your hands, avoiding overworking the meat. Into a loaf on the parchment-lined baking sheet, form the mixture. On top, cut a crisscross pattern using a sharp knife.
Step 5: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 40 minutes, uncovered.
Step 6: In the meantime, mix the ketchup with mustard and brown sugar in a bowl and set aside.
Step 7: On top of the meatloaf, spread the sauce mixture. Bake the meatloaf for another.
