A Favorite That Used To Be Dreaded

"What's for dinner?"
"Oh no! Meatloaf? Ugh."

Growing up, as far as I was concerned, "meatloaf" was almost a bad word. I was NOT a fan.

But this recipe is different from any meatloaf I've ever had. Everyone in our family loves it! Ryan actually requests it and our boys cheer when they hear it's meatloaf night! And I love it because it's good for leftovers too!

Try it out on your family!

BBQ Meatloaf
--1/2 cup KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce
--1 lb. ground beef
--1/2 cup chopped onion
--1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
--2 T parsley
--1 egg
--salt & pepper

--Combine all ingredients. Mix lightly to blend. Form into loaf. Place in shallow baking dish.

--Bake uncovered at 375* for 40-50 minutes. Remove from oven, let stand for 10 minutes.

As we say around here, it's Yummer Yummers!

In fact, we're having it tonight and I'm serving it with salad, corn and baked potatoes.

And, by the way, my new favorite way to make baked potatoes is after washing them, to stab them all over with a fork, lightly cover each one in olive oil (just rub on with your hand), then roll each one in salt and place in the oven with your meatloaf (at 375*) for about an hour.

That does sound good! I also disliked meatloaf growing up, but found a recipe when we were first married that James and I love! It is the meatloaf from home-ec 101's website... It also gives really great tips on making meatloaf (with any recipe) that doesn't taste like a meat brick :)
