Stuffing Mix Meatloaf ***

 I've mentioned before that I get odd, out-of-the-blue cravings for Stove Top.  I don't even like the stuff when it's by itself, but I love the flavor of it in dishes. This was my second time to make this recipe, and both times, the entire family has gushed over it.  They all especially love the topping.  I love the simplicity!  I use two pounds of ground turkey, so I have to cook it about 10 minutes longer (5 minutes added to each cooking part).  I also normally just sub some dried minced onion for the shallots.  The flavor is divine.  Seriously, I don't know why no one has thought of using stuffing mix in meatloaf before.  Absolutely brilliant!

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 box stuffing mix, any variety
1/2 cup water
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 shallot, grated
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, divided
1/2 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons brown sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, combine beef, stuffing mix, water, eggs, seasoned salt, pepper, grated shallot, and 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Pat into a loaf shape and place in a meatloaf pan or glass baking dish.
3. Bake for 30 minutes. Combine ketchup, brown sugar, and remaining teaspoon of Worcestershire and spread evenly over the meatloaf. Continue baking for 30 more minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
