Recipe by Theresa S.

This meatloaf is a family favorite. My children (9, 6, and 3) love it, too. I've shared this loaf with families who HATE meatloaf and they've all asked for the recipe. I use whatever organic ground pork or organic ground beef that I have on hand as long as I use at least 1# of each. Can be made into 1 large loaf or 2 small loafs.

I only used 2 1/4 pounds ground beef, added 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/3 cup sweet Barbecue sauce to the loaf and used half ketchup and half barbecue sauce with the brown sugar for the topping. My whole family enjoyed this version of meatloaf.
