Buttermilk Meatloaf

This recipe is a long series of trials and errors. The sauce and bread idea came from Paula Deen. The meatloaf itself is a recipe we found in the newspaper years ago. The final result is well worth a try.

This was good but kinda fell apart. I think it may need some more breadcrumbs.

We make lots of meatloafs, so it's hard to wow us! This meatloaf was really good, but I would have liked the meat to have a more exciting flavor. I will make it again (I always have buttermilk needing using) but I will add a good slug of hot sauce and some chopped pickled jalepenos to the next one. The sitting in step 8 is really important-it made this slice like it was cold, but it was still beautifully moist and tender (and hot). I caramelised some onions, then made them into a gravy to serve with this and mashed potatoes.
