    road princess Gilmore's Note:

    This is a southern meatloaf. It is the only one I will eat. The sauce makes it the best. Its a little sweet and a little sour. I promise you will love it. It is great on a sandwich the next day with a little mayo and cheese. My husband makes me double this recipe and he would eat it every day if I cooked it! We always fight over the leftovers!!

      We loved the flavor and the sauce, but there was one little problem...the rice was crunchy. Maybe Minute Rice would have been better? I will make this again, but either use Minute Rice or leave the rice out completely.
