What Is the Sauce on Meatloaf Made Of?

You can make meatloaf sauce with many things, but here’s a simple recipe to get you started:

  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp. brown sugar

All you need to do is combine these ingredients in a bowl and then brush it over your meatloaf during the last half-hour of cooking.

If you want to take your meatloaf to the next level, our favorite recipe is only slightly more complicated, calling for a few more ingredients and yielding enough meatloaf sauce to create a tasty glaze for a large loaf. It includes:

  • 2 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

No matter what the sauce on your meatloaf is made of, make sure not to leave it out. Meatloaf sauce is a vital component of the dish, adding a sweet and tangy flavor that can take any loaf from good to great.
