Pure comfort food! The meatloaf by itself is great and the sauce is an added bonus. Baking the sauce gives it a richer flavor than just simmering on the stove. The only change I made, was to use ground turkey for half of the ground beef, to cut some of the fat. This will be made again!

Fantastic meatloaf, loved the flavours and the thick sauce really completed this dish, though my sauce only needed 45 minutes to cook and the meatloaf a full hour. Thank you kittycatmom, made for I Recommend tag game and rcommended by Mikekey.

The meatloaf was very good, but the sauce had too much garlic for my taste. Thanks for posting! Made for I recommend tag game, 2013
