A moister, more flavorful version of meatloaf.

Top Review by JMMOELLER

This was good, but I thought it needed a little more excitement. I will make it again, but I will add some green peppers and a bit more BBQ sauce to the meatloaf. I will also use garlic powder instead of crushed. I thought the garlic gave it a weird tinge, but I did use garlic in a jar, so that may be the problem.
