    This adds a upbeat taste to a traditional dinner. Goes great with mashed potatoes and green beans. Nice for a weekend dinner! Great tip: Freeze or refrigerate leftovers to make meat loaf sandwiches for lunch or a snack. They are great!

      I should have paid closer attention to the other reviews and used much less BBQ sauce than the recipe suggested. I used an entire bottle for 2lbs of meat and the BBQ flavor was too overpowering for us. We liked the onions and peppers, that added a nice twist. I don't think that I would make this again, but if I did, I would use MUCH LESS BBQ sauce than suggested.

      Yummmm! What a great way to make meatloaf. I doubled the recipe to make sure we would have leftovers and used a *lot* less BBQ sauce than called for. I probably used half a bottle for 2 lbs of meat and it was perfect. I used KC Masterpiece because it's my favorite and it's very strong so maybe that had something to do with it. I also used a red and a green bell pepper for coloring as suggested. My wife said this was the best meatloaf she had ever had. Definitely a keeper!

      This is a very tasty meatloaf recipe! I also added the chopped onions into the mixture, vesus on top. I omitted the peppers b/c of personal preference and used Onion soup mix - didn't have French Onion on hand. I used "diana's own gourmet bbq sauce" and it was terrific!! I served this recipe with cheddar scallop potatoes and brussel sprouts - my hubby ate the leftovers the next day for lunch - the other "half" of the meatloaf! This is a keeper - I highly recommend this!!
