Meatloaf Toppings

Lately, I've been working on making our usual family meals more appealing.  This includes one of our staple meals, meatloaf.  Via facebook, I took a survey to see what some of my amazing friends put on top of their meatloaf.  Here are the results of that quick survey, in no particular order.

1.  Nothing     Although there is no separate topping for this meatloaf, the recipe calls for adding onion dip mix and ketchup to the meat before forming the loaf.

2.  Ketchup     Pour ketchup over the top just before baking.  Kids adore this topping!

3.  BBQ sauce     A few people use BBQ spread over the top of meatloaf as a topping.  A sweet, honey BBQ had more than one recommendation.

4.  1/2 cup ketchup, 3 Tbls cider vinegar, and 1/4 cup brown sugar.  Mix these 3 ingredients together and spread evenly over the top of your meatloaf before baking.

5.  3 Tbls brown sugar, 1/4 cup ketchup, 1/4 tsp grated nutmeg, and 1 tsp dried mustard  Mix and spread over the top of meatloaf before baking.

6.  A mix of ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce.  This is one of those toppings where you add the ingredients according to personal taste.  Experiment!

7.  Grated parmesan cheese and French's fried onions.  Equal parts to cover the meatloaf.

8.  Ketchup, honey and cumin.  Another one of those "use amount you like" kind of recipes. 

9.  Grape jelly added to any of the above toppings.  This is by far the strangest ingredient I've seen in a meatloaf topping.  I have several friends that swear by it, and they are fantastic cooks.  It's next on my list of new recipe ingredients to try.

Hopefully, some of these ideas will become part of your family's favorite toppings for your meatloaf recipes.  Experiment and have fun in the kitchen!
