Ingredients

  • 1 ½ pounds lean ground beef

  • 1 egg

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 cup low-fat (1%) milk

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard

  • cup ketchup

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

  2. Combine beef, egg, onion, milk, bread crumbs, parsley, and carrot in a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper. Place beef mixture in the loaf pan.

  3. Stir together brown sugar, mustard, and ketchup in a small bowl. Pour over meatloaf.
