"A great meatloaf that is easy to prepare. It is very yummy. My husband asked me if I'd remember how to make it. I said no, so he made me write down how to make it so I wouldn't forget. My picky 4-year old likes it."

Excellent!!!! Have made several times and my family loves it. I almost left out the hotsauce, but it gives great flavor and does not make spicy. Yum.
