Craving Comfort Food? Meatloaf with Barbecue Glaze

PUBLISHED ON: 11.20.2011

Yesterday was one those very enjoyable days.  We spent time running errands at leisure, and playing in the dirt.  Our garden is rocking and we are excited.  I have eaten more fresh vegetables in the last week, than probably in three months.  Its proof that if you buy or grow fresh vegetables, you are going to eat more healthy.

By the evening, we were craving comfort and what better dish to prepare than a classic American comfort food-Meatloaf.  It can feed a crowd or just the two of you.   Last night it fed the two of us with plenty left over for next week’s meatloaf sandwiches.

This meatloaf can be made ahead, shaped, wrapped in foil, and frozen for up to a month.  When ready, just thaw it out and bake as directed.
