Tracey's Tasty Meat Loaf

This meat loaf recipe originated with my sister who adopted a recipe from her mother-in-law. Then I searched around the internet a bit for tidbits that I might add that sounded good (like cheddar cheese, shredded carrot and horseradish)... and so here it is.


1-1/2 pounds ground beef
2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3 or 4 shredded baby carrots
1 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp horseradish
2 T parsley
1/2 tsp dried sage

1/4 cup ketchup
2 T brown sugar
1 tsp dry mustard

Mix together list of ingredients into a large bowl. Form into a loaf and place in a loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees or until meat thermometer reads 160-170 degrees. At 45 minutes, mix topping ingredients together and spread on to the meat loaf. Bake another 15 minutes.
