I think we’ve all had an experience with a dried out meatloaf and we wonder where we went wrong!  I can, with great confidence, guarantee that this meatloaf will not disappoint and could very well become a family favorite.  This meatloaf is so moist and the sauce on top is like icing on a cake…they just go together!

The other great thing about this recipe is that there aren’t a lot of extra ingredients.  It’s very possible that you have everything you need in your pantry and refrigerator right now!  So what are you waiting for?
