The sauce that goes on top of meatloaf is half the intrigue of the dish. While a meatloaf makes for a hearty, filling meal, it can sometimes be lacking in flavor and is always improved by a delicious meatloaf sauce. Using four basic ingredients – ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, and honey – you can make a mouth-watering sauce that requires only 2 minutes of preparation. Plus, this recipe can easily be adapted to fit your own palate with ample room for substitutions. (It’s perfect on top of this homemade meatloaf recipe!)
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
Measure out the ingredients for the meatloaf sauce.
Whisk until well-combined. Taste the sauce for flavor. If desired, add more Worcestershire, mustard, and/or honey to taste.
Step 3: Serve on Meatloaf!
Prior to baking your meatloaf in the oven, spread about 2 to 3 tablespoons on top. Once the meatloaf is out of the oven, smear more sauce on top, and/or serve the meatloaf with sauce on the side.
