Christina's Meatloaf & BBQ Sauce

Sam & Kaye Allen


This recipe was given to my mother in 1956. The lady who gave her the recipe said it had been handed down for generations in her family. Believe it or not, the oatmeal makes the difference. The sauce is so good, we use it for BBQ sauce. Make sure and have some sauce left to put on the table as dipping sauce. I hope you enjoy this heirloom recipe as much as we have.
