Sweet and Spicy Meatloaf Glaze

Sweet and spicy meatloaf glaze made with ketchup or chili sauce, spicy mustard, Cajun seasoning and brown sugar, pictured above on my Slow Cooker Meatloaf.

Sweet and Spicy Meatloaf Glaze

This is a great all purpose sweet and spicy glaze that I dearly love on meatloaf, because I don't know about you, but far as I'm concerned a meatloaf just ain't a meatloaf without a glaze slathered on it! My ole cranky Cajun "thinks" he prefers meatloaf with gravy - and this coming from man who smothers other foods with ketchup! Eh... what does he know. Give me my sweet and spicy red glaze y'all!

Here's how I make it.

If you think this sounds yummy, I'd sure it if you'd click to pin it, tweet it, stumble it, or share it on Facebook to help spread the word - thanks!


Recipe: Sweet and Spicy Meatloaf Glaze

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 5 min | Yield: About 1/2 cup

  • 1/2 cup of ketchup or chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of Creole or other spicy mustard
  • 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning (like Slap Ya Mama)

Combine the ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, and Cajun seasoning; stir well. Brush glaze all across the top of the meatloaf the last 10 minutes of cooking time.

Cook's Notes: A little pinch of prepared horseradish gives this a nice kick.

  1. I'm always looking for a new meatloaf idea.

    I' totally trying this one.

  2. hello! I am honored to be on your followers list...but mostly to have you on mine! I do hope to return to my blog is dealing my some not so pretty hands to play lately and I need some time to sort this out. I will be online again once I get this done and will be commenting and playing with my blog friends again soon....until the blog you have here!

  3. Awww thanks! I am envious of your garden and especially that greenhouse!!! I have wanted one so bad for YEARS.

    I hope that everything works out. My Mama used to tell me 'that which does not kill us, makes us stronger.' I pray strength for you.

  4. Love the meatloaf galaze, especially the horseradish, must really have a great flavor. I have to go through your archives, Mary, love your blog, realtively new to it, you have some terrific stuff!!

  5. Your meatloaf glaze sounds incredible. I love how you kicked it up and can't wait to try it!

  6. ' now I'm wondering about how to "amend" your soil...I just dumped some garden soil over all and mixed it in. The soil in the plot "looked" rich and good to much to learn....

    We are having "lots" of rain...I'll wish some your way ;D

    I see you are a Heinz gal...a woman after my own heart...I've never tried glazing my meatloaf except for ketchup...I may have to try this!

  7. I love meatloaf and new twists to it grab my attention! Yummy!!!

  8. Oh, so happy to find yer bloggie! What interesting recipes, and it's like a visit home, I am from New Orleans many a long year ago!!!

  9. What a great looking glaze! Do you think this would be mild enough for my kiddies?

  10. Hey y'all - you're so welcome! Thanks for the sweet comments.

    Tammy, you soil may be fantastic and not even need any amending - mine is NOT!

    Penniwig, didn't realize that!

    Heidi, leave out the horseradish or spicy mustard and just use regular yellow for the kiddos.

  11. Mary,
    I just threw together a meatloaf for tonights supper--I'm that kind of cook--don't really measure things--any way--I made the glaze by your recipe. OH MY--I think that is the best tasting meatloaf I have ever made in the almost 26 years I have been married. Everyone in the family loved it--I just wanted to eat the glaze by itself. I think I'll try it on broiled chicken next. Thanks for the recipe. Sheila in NC

  12. Sweet and Spicy! That sounds delish!

I love Disney World - it's my most favorite vacation. I last went in Oct. 2007 and I'm so itching to go again that it's not funny. Need to start using my Disney Visa again to start building up points.
