Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all the ingredients except the catsup and brown sugar together. Press the mixture firmly in an ungreased loaf pan 8 1/2 X 4 1/2 X 2 1/2-inches. Loosen the edge with a spatula and unmold the loaf in an ungreased baking pan 13 X 9 X 2-inches. Mix the catsup and sugar then spoon onto the loaf. Bake uncovered for about 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Remove the meat loaf to a plate and let stand for 10 minutes. Then slice and serve on a heated platter.
NOTE: If you don't have a pan this size, just form the mixture into a loaf in the large baking pan.
VARIATION: Roast Meat Loaf Ring: Press the meat mixture firmly into an ungreased 5 to 6 cup ring mold. Unmold in the baking pan by rapping mold against the bottom of the larger pan. Brush with the catsup mixture. Bake for about 50 minutes. If you desire, the hole in the ring can be filled with hot potato salad or creamed peas.
