Best Meatloaf Recipe

This is the best meatloaf recipe I have ever found.  My kids grew up on this and love it.  It came from Sandy McGowen in Georgia in one of those recipe books where everyone donates their favorite recipe.

1 1/2 lb. ground beef
3/4 cup cracker crumbs
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup brown sugar (the secret ingredient!)
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 6oz can tomato paste.

Combine the beef, eggs, Worcestershire and tomato sauce.  Then add the brown sugar and cracker crumbs. I usually need to add more cracker crumbs than is called for.  I use Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs.

Shape it in a loaf, place it on a baking pan leaving an inch around each side.  Spread the tomato paste on the top.

Cook at 350, covered with foil for 50 minutes.  Uncover and cook another 10 or 15 minutes.
