Gerry's Meatloaf With Dill Pickle Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Baby Kato

Yet another of dad's recipes. This is a slightly different meatloaf, than what most people are familiar with. Excellent served with rice, potatoes or broad pasta & fresh peas.

Thumbs up from my husband. I will mention one cooking method I used. I found the sauce to be a bit "loose", so I reduced it and then basted. Turned out nicely. I also grated the onion, as my husband doesn't care for chunks of onion in his meatloaf. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag Game. :)
