Why It's Called Magical Meatloaf Sauce

Looking for a different and elegant Meatloaf Sauce? This one will knock your socks off. As a bonus it's super easy too. Here's how I got this wonderful recipe.

This a true Meatloaf story. The names have been left out to protect the innocent (and not so innocent~ whoops, wrong story.)

While I was in college I lived with 3 other friends in a 2 bedroom apartment. We used to share cooking, meal planning, and shopping. One of my roommates was just not the greatest cook. Whenever it was her night to cook we would all find other things to do at the last minute.

But one week she announced that she had a wonderful sauce for the Meatloaf she was planning to serve. Not wanting to hurt her feelings we agreed to be there for dinner that night and voila...she finally made something we liked. Her sauce was delicious!

I called it magical because it made her Meatloaf taste delicious and that was saying something!

either 6 fresh, or
2 and one half cups of canned ones
One Onion, sliced in thin rings
One teaspoon Cinnamon
One half cup Brown Sugar
One teaspoon Vineager
One half teaspoon Salt

Directions for Magical Meatloaf Sauce

Mix all ingredients in a saucepan or crock pot and let simmer for at least 2 hours.

Serve hot over Meatloaf, other Meat dishes, Pasta, Chicken, Rice,or even other vegetables.

Diced Zuchinni can be added, about a half cup seems to be a good ratio.

I have noticed that young children like it better with no Onion, and sometimes I have substituted a cup of mashed or boiled Potatoes for the Onion before the age of four.

Just as an aside, anything you call "magical" will usually help in the "getting them to try it" department.
