Meatloaf with Sweet & Sour Sauce | Frugal & Simple

Meatloaf with Sweet & Sour Sauce

This is one of John David’s favorite meat dishes that his mom made when he was growing up. I had never liked meatloaf ¬†until I tried this meatloaf and I love it! It’s really easy, inexpensive and delicious!


1 pound ground meat

1 egg

3/4 cup oatmeal

salt and pepper

Mix together all ingredients. Bake in a greased baking dish on 375 for 45 minutes.

Sweet and Sour Sauce:

1-8oz can tomato sauce

2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2 tsp. mustard

Boil all ingredients and pour over meatloaf last 10 minutes of baking.


We typically make this in a small cast iron skillet however we have baked it in a loaf pan and an 8×8 casserole dish.

Ways to make this meatloaf cheaper:

  • Use ground venison instead of ground beef
  • Add in a little more oatmeal to make it stretch further

* I realize all the sugar in this doesn’t make it good for us as a dinner ¬†dish but it is delicious so we’re going to eat it every once in a while!
