The wonderful thing about two cooks in a family is the variety of what looks and sounds good, that second set of senses is very agreeable to variety. My husband is somewhat a new cook, however since retirement, he is quickly becoming a regular contributor to our evening meals.
The other very nice happenstance is that food is viewed from a different angle than that of a long term cook, who while still enjoys cooking, has become somewhat stuck in a rut! And that would be me.......plus I have learned from my husband that the slow cooker is a cook's best friend.
This lovely meatloaf was waiting to be top sauced when I got home from work, and from there we had a lovely supper. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did, and the leftovers will make delicious sandwiches. This is a compact meatloaf, yet very tender and the sauce sets it off perfectly.

Remove meatloaf from cooker, allow to rest 5 minutes, slice and enjoy.

As always thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello. We appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!
Update: we purchase ground beef in 1 pound frozen chubs from Costco, this will show you how easy it is to to use 2 pounds, and not have half of a pound of leftover thawed ground beef.
If using 2 pounds of beef, simply increase the bread crumbs to 3/4 cup and follow recipe as indicated. We made it this way last night and it is wonderful, just like the first time, but with no leftover beef to try and use up.
