Here's a personal favorite:

(low altitude recipe - adjust oven heat, as necessary, for higher altitudes)

Applesauce Meatloaf

4 lbs. lean ground beef
6 eggs
2 cups bread crumbs
2 cups applesauce
1-1/2 cups milk
small onion



Combine, by hand, the ground beef, onion, and eggs. Once completely blended, fold in the applesauce and bread crumbs and blend into mixture. Add milk and work it into the mixture.

Next step, form 2 loaves and set side by side on baking pan. Use a baking pan with a rack, if possible, to keep excess juices away from the meat. (Try to avoid making the center of the loaves too high as this can cause cooking time to increase.)

Cover (with foil) and bake at 375 degrees for 1-1/2 hours.

Remove from oven and spread topping over the loaves.


Topping

Ketchup
"Light" Brown Sugar
Dry Mustard
Vinegar



Combine ingredients to taste - it should be similar in taste to bbq sauce.

Leave uncovered and place back in oven for additional 30 minutes.

****

Remove from oven and serve with mashed potatoes and vegetable of choice.

Serves 10.
Makes excellent sandwiches, the next day.
Freezes well.
