MEATLOAF WITH SWEET AND SOUR SAUCE

This recipe is from an old newspaper clipping.

1 1/2 lbs ground chuck
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 can (15-oz size) tomato sauce (save other half for sauce)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, combine the above ingredients and mix well; form into a loaf. Place in a meatloaf pan with a drain insert to keep meatloaf from sitting in fat. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.

SAUCE:

Remainder of the tomato sauce
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp cider vinegar
2 tbsp prepared mustard

In a small saucepan, combine the above sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stir and lower heat to low. Allow sauce to simmer. After meatloaf has baked 45 to 50 minutes, remove from oven and pour some of the sauce over the meatloaf. Return to oven and bake another 10 minutes. Serve extra sauce in a bowl.
