Meatloaf with Zesty Topping

Mix well:
2 beaten eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 cup crushed cracker crumbs
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
½ cup grated carrots
1/4 cup minced onions
2 lbs. lean ground beef

Put in a 5 X 9" loaf pan or shape into a loaf in a baking pan.

1/4 cup catsup
1 Tblsp. mustard
3 Tblsp. brown sugar

Mix topping, spread over meatloaf.
Bake at 300 degrees for 1 ½ to 1 3/4 hours, depending on thickness of loaf.

The lower temperature keeps the loaf from shrinking and getting dry.
This is a great recipe for ground round and really lean ground beef, it stays moist.
