Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and ground black pepper in a large bowl. Add crumbled bread and stir until dissolved. Mix ground beef, onion, Cheddar cheese, and carrot into bread mixture; transfer mixture to a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Combine brown sugar, ketchup, and mustard in a small bowl; spread over meat mixture.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, 1 to 1 1/4 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

This was absolutely the best meatloaf I have ever made, or had for that matter, in my life. I highly recommend it. The savory sweet glaze is fantastic! My whole crew normally puts ketchup on everything. Not one of them reached for it!! Amazing!

I've always found meat loaf bland and a hard sell at my dinner table, until I found this recipe. It's been my stand-by for a couple of years now. Thanks Matt!

I used a pound of meat instead of the 1 1/2 pounds called kept everything the same other than the bread it still turned out great! Glaze on top was perfect texture!
