  • 3 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar (or 3 tbsp maple syrup or honey)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper or spray with non-stick.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the meatloaf ingredients and mix with clean hands until well combined. Place into the loaf pan and lightly pack. Bake for 45 minutes.
