A honey mustard glaze gives this meatloaf great flavor. It's like a traditional meatloaf, but instead of a ketchup/tomato-based glaze, Dijon-style sweet mustard provides the tang on top. Also, meatloaf makes for great leftover food; use the leftovers to make sliders.

  • 1/3 cup dry breadcrumbs (plain or seasoned)
  • 2 eggs

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
