Sweet and Sour Meatloaf

From my old roommate, Stacy

This is for people who hate meatloaf.
I was one such person, until my domestically inclined roommate Stacy showed me the way. It is so good, sweet and spicy, I couldn't believe it. The whole dorm room looked forward to her meatloaf and the day of we made it a rule that we could only listen to Meatloaf on meatloaf day in preparation for the occasion. So get your 80's CD's ready.

1 (12 oz) jar red currant jelly
1 (12 oz) jar chili sauce
1 lb ground beef
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 egg
1/2 cup ketchup

To prepare sauce, combine red currant jelly and chili sauce in a sauce pan. Heat until jelly is melted and well blended.
For meatloaf, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, chopped onions, salt, pepper, egg and ketchup mold into a 5x9 loaf pan. Pour half of sauce over meatloaf and bake for 1 hour at 400. Heat remaining sauce and serve with meatloaf.

*Must also play meatloaf CD
