My husband and I ate at this little Inn in California and asked what was in the Meatloaf. I experimented on my own and came up with this recipe. I made up the sauce on my own and added it to the meatloaf.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This recipe makes a large meatloaf that is so tender, juicy and moist with a deep, hearty flavor. You might think of it as just meatloaf, but this one has a great intense beefiness with that special sauce that will separate it from the pack.

Perfect for a family get together or for those chilly nights when you need that perfect comfort food dish to satisfy your cravings! Invite your friends, family and neighbors. They'll know you really love them when you serve this dish! The Test Kitchen
