The Meatloaf With the Sauce!

Recipe by puppitypup

Hubby and I have an ongoing feud over meatloaf - my saucy version vs. his Italian version. Since meatloaf is one of the few entrees he knows how to make, I don't complain when he makes his...but I definitely prefer this one!

First, let me say that the smell coming out of the oven was absolutely irresistable! I was literally drooling while waiting for this to come out of the oven. DS is not an onion fan, so I reduced the onions a bit. However, the meatloaf still tasted quite "oniony". My sauce turned out very thin, so I'd eliminate the water next time. The smell deserves 5 stars, but the poll around the table was 3 & 4 stars for the meatloaf and sauce.
