One of my favorite meals is meatloaf, fried potatoes, pinto beans and cornbread. It’s a meal I grew up on and one I make a good bit here at home. I’ve got a good many meatloaf recipes that I make but nothing beats a good ole down home meatloaf. A while back my Daddy told me that he used chili sauce in his meatloaf and I had never thought to swap ketchup for chili sauce so I gave it a try, it was a really nice additional flavor and just delicious. I couldn’t wait for the next day to enjoy a cold meatloaf sandwich with the leftovers.
