"THIS is a recipe that comes from my father's side of the family. It's a simple dish to make, good for just about any occasion. The sauce makes the meat especially flavorful. For me, this recipe brings back all kinds of memories of my childhood days in Nebraska. I hope you'll enjoy it in your home over and over again, so it can create some memories for you as well."

A good alternative to usual meat loaf - nice hammy taste. Don't neglect the basting sauce as it adds a lot a flavor. The loaf would be rather flat without it.

A lovely variation on the other meat loaf! I have made this as meat balls also and served with navy bean soup and cornbread!
