Dill Pickle Meatloaf

I've been making this meatloaf for a long while now. Every time that I make it there is nothing left in the pan and sometimes a fight will break out for the last little bits in the pan. I need to start doubling this recipe so this behavior stops! Ah but then again its quite a funny sight!! Hope that some of you all try this. Everyone that I have shared this recipe with has totally enjoyed it.

Family favorite! This will get the kids to clean their plates. 

1 1/2 pounds of ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup soft breadcrumbs
1/2 cup pickle juice
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup dill pickles, chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly mix meat with onions, bread crumbs, pickles, egg salt, and  pepper until well blended.

Shape into a loaf and place in a shallow pan.

Combine pickle juice, ketchup, water, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. (I usually leave out the water and just put in extra pickle juice. We like the pickle flavoring.)

Pour over meatloaf and place in 350 degree oven basting twice with sauce in pan for 40 minutes.

Continue baking without basting for an additional 30-35 minutes, or until meatloaf is really glazed and done.

Garnish with a pickle fan, if desired.
