Tangy Meat Loaf Recipe

The unusual ingredient of pineapple lends a slightly sweet flavor to this meat loaf. Our children took a copy of this treasured recipe with them when they left home. - Phyllis Mussman, Cedar Rapids, Iowa

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef

Combine glaze ingredients; pour over loaf. Bake, uncovered, 15 minutes longer or until the meat is no longer pink and a thermometer reads 160°. Yield: 8 servings.
