I really do think that Meatloaf has gotten a bad rap.

I am sure that there are a few of you reading this and remembering your not so good meatloaf experience from your childhood.

Those days are gone.

We are adults now.

We need to embrace our meatloaf fears and dive right in. There will be no more dry tasteless meatloaf.

You can do this I promise. If I can do it you can do it.

The trick to keeping this meatloaf moist and flavorful is adding barbecue sauce to the meatloaf mixture.

I contemplated putting barbecue sauce on the top but opted for the classical ketchup, brown sugar and Worcestershire combination. Why mess with a classic?

Now remember make enough so you can have sandwiches the next day. Yes, even if you have to make two meatloaf’s. Those sandwiches are the bomb.
