Upside Down Meat Loaf

Comment on this recipe

A hearty catsup is better. You can use ground beef.

Ingredients

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup catsup
1-1/2 pounds ground turkey
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 cup milk
1 onion, grated or chopped fine
3/4 cup crushed soda crackers

Instructions

Butter a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Press brown sugar in bottom of pan, spread catsup over sugar. Works best if catsup is room temperature. Mix ground meat, beaten eggs, pepper, ginger, milk, onion and crackers all together in mixing bowl. When thoroughly combined, shape into loaf pan on top of sugar and catsup mixture. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. When done, remove pan from oven, turn upside down on platter immediately. Let stand for 10 minutes prior to slicing loaf. After the loaf has "rested," slice and serve.
