Stir in the sauce, reserving 1/3 cup for later. Mix thoroughly. (Sooooo I was a dummy and didn’t read the recipe correctly and so I poured alllll of the sauce over the meatloaf instead of mixing it in, and well it was dry and it took me an hour to clean the pan I baked it in. SO note to self: READ the recipe correctly, not just skim it)

Press mixture into large loaf pan or shape your own loaf in a 13×9 pan.

If using loaf pan, be sure to have a large pan underneath to catch spillage. Pour remaining sauce over top of meatloaf evenly.

Bake for 1 to 1.5 hours or until meat is cooked through.

Slice and serve with your favorite rice.

So again the meatloaf was good but dry and that is my own doing! Make sure you add the sauce but reserve 1/3 cup for later, and pour that 1/3 cup over the meatloaf and mix the rest in with the meatloaf, don’t add it all over the meatloaf because it has sugar and when you bake sugar it becomes a mess to clean up!
