I found this recipe in an old Lion's Cookbook and was interested. I first made this when my oldest daughter was 5; she absolutely loved it; plus the rest of our family! We have a tradition in our household that when it's your Birthday you can request what you want for your special birthday meal. Jordan has been requesting this meatloaf, mashed potatoes and homemade frozen corn for years. Note: Jordan just turned 19 and yes requested this same meal. I have since changed the name from Margie's to Jordan's Favorite Meatloaf.

How to Make Jordan's Favorite Meatloaf


  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Combine the first 10 ingredients until mixed. Do not over mix; as it will result in tough meatloaf
  2. Put meatloaf mixture onto a oiled or parchment lined baking sheet. Top the mixture with bacon. Bake uncovered for 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
  3. Brush with additional barbecue sauce as much as desired, return to oven and bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes or when internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  4. Remove from oven and let rest 15 to 20 minutes.

    Jordan loves this meatloaf with mashed potatoes, homemade frozen corn and Jell-O Cake.
