Kasey here, although we follow a clean eating lifestyle we do have a cheat meal or two at least once or twice a week. My kids absolutely LOVE meatloaf, it’s one of their favorite meals. This is my mom’s best meatloaf recipe that I thought I’d share with you. My favorite part is the yummy ketchup/brown sugar/vinegar topping. I often make two at a time and put one in the freezer for later. I serve with mashed potatoes and broccoli for a delicious home cooked supper.
