This was a great meatloaf. My children don't like meatloaf but with this recipe there was no leftovers. We will definatley make this one again. I didn't have breadcrumbs so I crushed up onion garlic croutons. This had a great flavor.

Good directions. I didn't have chili sauce so I substituted taco sauce and since I didn't have the Worcestershire sauce I had to skip that ingredient. I doubled the bacon. It was fantastic
