The hot sauce and brown sugar are a nice combination, and it is really different with the deli ham and ground pork added to the ground beef. I recently discovered this, after "rediscovering" meatloaf, and this is very good.

I made this tonight for my husband and I and he said, it was the best meatloaf he's ever had. It was sweet, flavorfull, moist and sticky on top. Coming from a Southern girl, quite a nice surprise. Will make again and again!!

WOW!! this was the BEST meatloaf we have ever had :) I scaled it down to make 1 meatloaf since its just the two of us. I omitted the tomato sauce and used some ketchup for the top. Also used black forest ham and added a dash of Hickory Smoked Liquid to the meatloaf mixture to give the smoked favor. The favors were just fabulous!! a touch of sweetness with a ting of spice, just wonderful :) I want to add that the meatloaf took 2 hrs instead of 1 in my oven. Not sure if it was my oven or if the recipe was off in the time for baking. My husband told me after dinner that I had found the best meatloaf recipe he had ever had so with this said... This is the meatloaf I will make from now on. Thank you so much for sharing this FANTASTIC recipe!! :)
