  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Set a foil-covered wire rack over a foil-covered lipped cookie sheet. Use a fork to pierce foil on rack all over.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onions in oil until tender and golden, about 5 minutes.
  3. Break up ground beef in a large bowl. Mix in cooked onions, eggs, milk, cracker crumbs, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper. Divide meat mixture into 2 portions. Place on foiled-lined wire rack, and form into 2 oval loaves.
  4. Mix together brown sugar, mustard, and ketchup in a small bowl. Brush mixture over each loaf.
  5. Bake until cooked through (160 degrees on a meat thermometer), about 45 to 50 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes to cool, slice, and serve.

I use bread crumbs instead if saltines and use 1/2 sausage and 1/2 ground round. It was excellent the night of and as a left over. The best meat loaf I have ever had

This is a good basic meatloaf recipe if you don't know what you have never made meatloaf before. I however found it a little bland. My husband who likes his meatloaf plain enjoyed it. The only changes I made were to halve the recipe and add a little garlic. I served with mashed potatoes.

I changed a few things, only because of what I had on hand. I used about 1/2 cup of dry, minced onions, and Italian bread crumbs, and added garlic like someone else suggested. Then, I had ran out of Reynolds wrap, (imagine that) so I put the mealoaf in a pan, and it still turned out really good. All in all, I really liked the taste, although the glaze was a bit too sweet, for me.

When I made this recipe my father was watching me and I saw his face and he was getting quite nervous about eating this. But it did turn out quite well. I might try a different glaze but the meatloaf it self was quite yummy.

My family really liked this one. I was just a tiny bit confused with the glaze because I used all the mustard in the meat mixture but it was still a hit. Thanks for the recipe :)

Very good recipe, it is certainly a keeper. Instead of saltine crackers i used dried bread crumbs. I also added 2tbsp of garlic powder to the ground beef. Thanks for the recipe

Very tasty! I substituted Ritz crackers for saltines (b/c that's all I had!) and it was great. I placed the loafs right on a wire rack with a drip pan so that some grease would drip off and it did pretty well. The leaner the meat, the better though. Thanks Pam!
