When I was growing up I remember my Mom using Corn Flakes for a lot of different recipes. But the one I remember most was her meatloaf. Not sure what the magic of Corn Flakes is, but this is one of the best meatloaves you'll ever make. So... much more moist and lighter than using bread. Try it and let me know what you think. I love this simple recipe! Look in the comments for more photos of my dinner tonight! Yum!
Corn Flake Meatloaf (Also known as Amish Meatloaf)
2 pounds ground beef or chuck (80% lean)
2 1/2 cups crushed Corn Flakes (or use crushed Ritz Crackers)
1 small onion, chopped
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup evaporated milk
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup (it makes the glaze sticky so it stays on the meatloaf, but you can leave it out if you want)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, crushed Corn Flakes or crackers, onion, eggs, evaporate milk, 3/4 cup ketchup, and 1/4 cup brown sugar until blended.
Do not over work or pat down. You want to keep the mixture lose. Using a buttered baking dish, mound meat mixture into a loaf shape. Bake for 1 hour or until cooked through. Add the ketchup glaze half way through cooking. Let rest for about 5 minutes before slicing and serve.
