This recipe is awesome! I'm pretty much a purist when it comes to meatloaf. This recipe nailed it and improved it. The only thing I did differently was add 1/3 cup of diced green pepper. I was afraid that the sauce was going to be too "BBQy" but it wasn't. Just the perfect amount of sweet and sour. This will be a go-to meatloaf recipe at our house!

- Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a small saucepan using a whisk, place on medium heat. Allow sauce to slowly "bubble" for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Pour sauce over entire meatloaf to coat and drip down the sides, covering loaf with sauce. Bake for 1 hour on 350 degrees. Makes 1 yummy loaf!
- Serve with your favorite mashed potatoes and greens.
