Brown Sugar Meatloaf

I absolutely adore meatloaf. Pretty much anything that includes ground beef or turkey is going to please me. This meatloaf is one of our favorites. It is sweet and tangy and I enjoy it with some tasty mashed potatoes.

I found this meatloaf years ago. It is a cousin of my favorite brown sugar chili recipe (coming soon). Originally I made it with ground beef but changed it to ground turkey and it was just as good!
