Old Fashioned Meatloaf

One of our families favorite meals is Meatloaf with Mac N Cheese or Mashed Potatoes, a green vegetable and a salad. We love the leftovers just as much the next day when we make meatloaf sandwiches. I put Meatloaf on our menu quiet a bite in the fall and winter and sometimes in the summer. I have often times been asked by some of you for my meatloaf recipe. I looked back on my recipe box and I realized that I had never posted the recipe for the meatloaf. I am happy to share the Meatloaf recipe with all of you today and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Cook uncovered in the oven at 350 for 1 hour, remove from the oven and cover with the sauce and add the bacon.
Put back in the oven and continue to cook for 30 minutes until bacon is brown and crisp.
Let the meatloaf set for at least 10 minutes before slicing.

Serve the sauce on the side.
This Meatloaf can be frozen for up to three months.  It is great the next day with sandwiches.
