We are big-time meatloaf fans in our house. No, not Meat Loaf the “I’d Do Anything For Love” singer, though you know I can’t resist belting out that song whenever I hear it on the radio. I’m talking about comforting, home cooked meatloaf that makes the whole house smell fantastic.

When I was a little girl, I would always pack a lunch on days when the school cafeteria would serve meatloaf, but right after I graduated from college I tried it again and discovered meatloaf can be one heck of a delicious meal that’s also very easy to make. Though it’s never the most attractive dish, it is tasty comfort food at its finest!

Meatloaf is a meal I’ll prepare fairly often in our house because it’s simple to throw together and tastes great reheated the next day for a hearty lunch or filling dinner. Just serve it with your favorite sides – a roasted sweet potato, green beans and slivered almonds, a fresh chopped salad.

This recipe is full of tangy barbeque flavor and I incorporated some chopped veggies into the loaf as well for a nutritional punch. Ryan and I love thick, chopped vegetables in the meatloaf, but you can finely dice the vegetables or even pulse them in a food processor to make them a little less noticeable if that’s more your style. Either way, I think you’ll love this dish!
