A sure-fire way to get the kids to eat carrots!  This traditional sweet/sour taste is a favorite of mine.  When seeking comfort food flavors, I often turn to my trusty arsenal of Pa Dutch recipes that honor my German and Pennsylvania Dutch ancestors.  Quick and tasty, theese keep tightly covered in the refrigerator for several weeks.  But rarely do they last that long in my house!

postheadericon Pa. Dutch Meatloaf

In keeping with sharing our Pennsylvania Dutch  diversity in the Coal Region, today’s recipe is Pa. Dutch  Meatloaf.

This meatloaf is sweet from the addition of brown sugar and has a ketchup/brown sugar glaze.  I just love the leftovers in sandwiches after it has been chilled. And of course, it is also topped with strips of bacon…
