Dill Pickle Meatloaf

1 Egg
1 small Onion, chopped
1/2 cup Dill Pickle Juice
3/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
1 slice Bread, torn into small pieces
1 lb. Lean Ground Beef
1/4 cup Dill Pickles, chopped
1/4 cup Ketchup
2 tbsp. Water
1 tbsp. Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8" baking dish. Beat the egg in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the onion, pickle juice, salt and pepper. Stir in bread until soggy, then mix in ground beef until evenly combined. Form into a loaf and place into prepared dish. Stir together chopped pickles, ketchup, water, sugar, and Worcestershire sauce, then pour over meatloaf. Bake in preheated oven until no longer pink in center, or about 1 hr. An instant-read thermometer inserted into center should show at least 160 degrees.
