Lighten Up Barbecue Meatloaf



barbecue meatloaf

This is hands down, my daughter’s favorite recipe.  The first time I made, we ate it all in a day, then I made it again a week later and it away just as fast as the first one.  I’ve been making ever since, and it still disappears in a day.  It’s super simple and basically healthy for you, You just can’t beat that!
