1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup ketchup
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
3/4 Cup milk
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
3/4 Cup finely crushed saltine cracker crumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 5x9 inch loaf pan.
Press the brown sugar in the bottom of the pan and spread the ketchup over the sugar.
In a mixing bowl, mix thoroughly all remaining ingredients and shape into a loaf. Place on top of ketchup.
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour or until juices run clear.
I made this the other night for the first time and it was so good! I modified it a little. I only added 1/2 cup of milk and used 1/2 cup of bread crumbs instead of the saltine crackers. Yummy!
