2/3 cup combination of rolled oats, Italian bread crumbs, crushed saltine crackers
1 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce***optional
2 large eggs
1 cup white onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 pounds ground beef

1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 teaspoon dried mustard
1/2 teaspoon dried ginger
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
Couple drops hot sauce***optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl mix the first 11 ingredients until evenly blended.  Add the ground beef and with your hands mix until all the ingredients are well combined.

Mix all the topping ingredients in liquid measuring cup.  Set aside.

On a rimmed baking sheet form the meat ingredients into a loaf (the mixture is a bit loose so wide, about 5 inches is better).  Pour half the topping over the meatloaf.  Brush the sauce over top and sides in an even layer.

Bake meatloaf in a preheated oven for 1 hour.  Remove meatloaf from oven and brush the remainder of sauce over top and side in an even layer then return meatloaf to oven and cook for 15 minutes.  Allow meatloaf to cool for 10 minutes then serve.

***Can also be made using muffin tins.  Just reduce the cooking time to about half.
