  • Preheat oven to 350° F.  Sauté  the onions in olive oil until caramelized, add minced garlic, sauté for 1 additional minute.
  • Remove the onion mixture from heat, add Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground ground beef,  eggs, bread crumbs, tomato sauce and the cooled onion mixture. 
  • Use your hands to mix the simple meatloaf mixture very well.    Since this is raw meat you might wish to use disposable food prep gloves for this.
  • Spray a bread loaf pan with cooking spray and press the meatloaf mixture into the loaf pan, press down well to shape.  Only use the bread loaf pan as a mold but not for baking.
  • Place parchment paper on a large baking sheet.  Carefully turn loaf pan upside down onto the parchment lined baking sheet to remove meatloaf.   Finish shaping the meat loaf by hand.   This step will prevent a soggy meatloaf since it will be baked on the baking sheet. 
  • Mix the meatloaf glaze ingredients,( ketchup, vinegar and brown sugar) in a small bowl.  Combine well. 
  • Pour a little over half of the glaze mixture on the entire meatloaf saving the rest for later. Spread with the back of a spoon until its evenly dispersed.    Place in preheated oven and bake for about 60 minutes until juices run clear and the center temperature is 160 degrees F. 
  • During the last 10 minutes of baking, brush the remaining glaze mixture on the top of the meatloaf.  Remove from oven and slice to serve.
