Old fashioned meatloaf

Meatloaf is one of my favorite meals to make during the holidays. It’s perfect for a casual dinner, but can also be served as a special meal for company. This meatloaf is covered in a bbq based sauce, so it has loads of flavor. Serve this with your favorite mashed potato recipe and the perfect dinner is ready!
