This is another easy family favorite which combines a nice meat loaf with a sweet-sour sauce. The recipe makes two loaves so I usually freeze one for later. This makes a great meal when paired with rice and a fresh veggie and/or a salad. Believe me, you'll like this one!

I really, really enjoyed this recipe. It is comfort food at its best. I even ate this as leftovers, I mean just this alone no side dishes. And I'm not big on leftovers! The sweet and sour sauce on top just gives it a wonderful flavor. And I have an extra one in the freezer for next time!
