Upside Down Meatloaf


1/2 c. brown sugar

1/2 c. ketchup

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef

3/4 c. milk

2 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 small onion, finely chopped (optional)

3/4 c. oatmeal or crushed cracker crumbs


Grease loaf pan.  Mix the brown sugar and ketchup and place 3/4 of the mixture in the bottom of the pan.  Mix the remaining ingredients together and put into the loaf pan.  Put the remaining brown sugar/ketchup mixture on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Turn upside down to serve.

If you are short on time use a muffin tin instead of a loaf pan.  Put a spoonful of brown sugar/ketchup on bottom of each muffin, place hamburger mix in and top with brown sugar/ketchup mix.  Baking time gets cut in half.
