I remember the first time I went grocery shopping after both of my kids were away at school. I wandered aimlessly down the aisles thinking "That's what Isaac likes, I don't want that. What DO I like?" It was so odd to shop only for myself. And then I saw the ground pork. MEATLOAF. I hadn't made it since my husband died because my kids won't eat it.
I love my meatloaf. And it doesn't go bad because I have it cold for sandwiches the next few days. I once had a roommate who claimed she couldn't stand meatloaf until she tried mine and then she ate practically the whole thing.
I can get my daughter to eat my meatballs, which don't tell anyone...are the same thing only in balls rather than a loaf.
- I lb. ground beef
- 1 lb. ground pork
- 1 egg, beaten
- ¼ cup grated onion
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp Penzeys Barbeque of the Americas

- 1 tbs sugar

Mix tomato sauce, ketchup, honey and wing sauce. Pour over loaf.
Bake it for an hour or a little more at 375.
That's all there is to it. This is comfort food, Baby!
