The Best Meatloaf

My father-in-law was in town over the weekend and we had a BBQ at our house on Sunday evening. As a side, I decided to make garlic, mashed, red-skin potatoes. Because it was three hungry men and me, I made a lot of mashed potatoes in hopes to appease their appetites. Well, I ended up doing that and then some. I was left with tupperware after tupperware dish full of mashed potatoes.

I gave it some thought and decided that meatloaf would be the perfect main dish for the leftover mashed potatoes from Sunday. On Monday, my husband and I ran to the store and picked up all of the ingredients. Because this was my first time making meatloaf, I was extremely nervous since my husband can be picky at times.

When it came out of the oven, both of our mouths were watering. It smelled and looked delicious. After the first few bites, my husband looked at me and said, “This is the best meatloaf I have ever had in my entire life. It’s so good I don’t even need ketchup!” And trust me, he loves ketchup with meatloaf.

We loved it and I’m sure you and your family will love it too. It’s super easy to make and you’ll even had enough for leftovers!

  3. Place the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and shape into a loaf. Brush the top with a tiny bit more steak sauce.

  1. And for an extra kick, substitute Pickapeppa sauce for the A-1 sauce. I sometimes mix A-1 in with the meat and then brush the top with Pickapeppa…yum!
