Jen's "What's in the Fridge" Meatloaf

So magikgrrl just posted a yummy-sounding recipe, which I promptly sent to my husband. He’s the “real” cook around here. Anyhow, I feel brave enough to post my meatloaf recipe, which I think is quite good. And judging from the fact that DH will request it, I think he likes it too.

Jen’s “What’s in the Fridge” Meatloaf

2 lb hamburger
2 eggs
1/2 cup BBQ sauce of your choice. [1]
1 tbsp Heinz 57
1 tbsp A1
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp Worstechestershestersheister
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
2 tbsp chopped dried onions (or fresh chopped) (or as much or as little as you like)
1 tbsp chopped/minced garlic (or as much or as little as you like)
1 1/2 cups (ish) bread crumbs [2]

Mix all ingredients except bread crumbs in a bowl. Add bread crumbs until it’s a nice meatloafy consistency. I start out with a cup and add more as necessary Sauce measurements are suggestions.

Put mixture into a loaf pan, brush bbq sauce on top. Bake for about an hour at 375 degrees.

[1] Right now, we like Jack Daniels BBQ sauce.
[2] Progresso Garlic & Herb bread crumbs. Yum.
