Wine-Basted Pork Loaf

Tasty little variation on traditional meatloaf!
I like to mix up the flavors a bit sometimes; add minced garlic, substitute seasoned Italian bread crumbs for the roll and decrease the milk to almost none and use red instead of white wine. Also tasty: use 1/3 cup of finely chopped fresh pineapple and use a teriyaki marinade for the baste. Mmmm, I'm getting hungry.....

When I was single and made this, I liked to make sandwiches with the leftovers. I'd saute some sweet onions in a little butter until they were almost clear, then push them to one side of the pan and throw a slice of the loaf in the pan to heat. Melt a slice of whatever cheese was handy on top, throw it on a roll and top with the onions, and lunch was done!
