Mom's Meatloaf

This is my Mother's meatloaf recipe and my favorite.  I have one in the oven right now that I mixed up last night and left refrigerated until this morning to cook.  It is a bit different from most because of the "special sauce" made up with a hint of nutmeg that is used to mix into the meat as well as to top the loaf.

Ingredients for Mom's Meatloaf:

2 pounds ground chuck
1 C. crushed corn flake crumbs
2 eggs
1 onion diced
2 t. pepper
2 T. parsley
1/2 recipe of "special sauce" plus 1/2 recipe held back for topping

Ingredients for Special Meatloaf Sauce:

1/2 C. ketchup
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/3 C. packed brown sugar
1 1/2 t. mustard
2 T. vinegar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix all of the ingredients for the special sauce together in a small bowl and set aside.  Mix all of the ingredients for the meatloaf together reserving 1/2 of the special sauce fot the topping.  Form into the desired meatloaf and spread the remaining sauce over the top evenly.  Bake for 60-70 minutes until cooked through.  Let rest 10 minutes before slicing.  Slice and serve.  Yield 6 generous servings.
