Meatloaf

This recipe is from Amber, also known as Disillusioned, who is a member of the Daily KOS and MoveON.org. Yes, she is a lefty kinda person, but she and I have found that we can have a polite discussion about things. Besides, people of every political stripe like food, right????
The recipe is simple and looks just great -

Here it is:

Comfort Food. Mmm. :) This is the recipe that never, and I mean NEVER, gets
any leftovers when I make it. I can't stand a 'ketchupy' meatloaf, but this
is by far the best I've ever tasted. The kids go crazy for it. Enjoy!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

1 1/2 lbs. hamburger (can use up to 2)
1 pkg saltine crackers (crushed)
1 small onion chopped
2 eggs
1/2 green pepper (optional)
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. ginger (to taste, I love the flavor it gives so I use more
than 1/4)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup (packed) brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a standard meatloaf dish. Spread the
brown sugar on the bottom, then spread the ketchup over top of the brown
sugar.

Mix all other ingredients, form loaf, and set on top of the brown
sugar/ketchup spread. Bake for approx. 1 hour or until juices run clear.

Simple, cost effective, and delicious!!
