I wanted to put together a better tasting meatloaf. I reviewed bunches of recipes and picked ingredients that I thought would work good together and produce a really good taste. After some testing I came up with this recipe and the results are outstanding. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

  • 4
    Divide meat mixture in half and put into two lightly greased loaf pans. Add sauce to the top of each meatloaf. --OR-- Put a rack in the bottom of a 9 X 13 baking pan. Put the meatloaves on the rack, this will keep the meatloaves up out of the grease. Spread the sauce over the top of the meatloaves.

    Bake 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into meatloaf reads 160°. Let stand 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
