Here is another classic...Meatloaf. This is also a recipe I got from my mom and ate all the time growing up. Normally it would be accompanied by the fabulous Onion Pie
The thing that makes this meatloaf a little different then normal ones, is the sauce that goes on the top. Most people just put ketchup on top, but this sauce adds a little more zip. Enjoy!

3 slices of bread
1 cup milk
1 egg beaten
2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup minced onion
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. sage
1/4 tsp. celery salt
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1 TBSP. Worcestershire sauce

1. Break up the bread into very small pieces.
2. Add all ingredients and mix until well combined.
3. Pour 1/3 of Piquant sauce over top.
4. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours
5. You will want to drain the grease out of the pan before serving...mainly because its very unappetizing to look at :)

Piquant Sauce
1/2 cup tomato sauce
6 TBSP brown sugar
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. dry mustard

**Randi's Side Notes**
~ I have also made this using turkey burger and it tastes just as fabulous.
~ You want to make sure to break the bread up really small otherwise you will get a big bite of soggy bread and that just isn't very tasty in my opinion. I have used both white and wheat bread and both taste great.

**Freezer Instructions**
~ Combine all ingredients (except for Piquant Sauce) and place in a freezer safe, oven safe dish.
~ Thaw it out before baking and cook as directed above.
~ I don't like to make the sauce ahead of time and freeze it, mainly because its pretty easy without making it ahead, but it does freeze easily, just store it in a seperate container next to the meatloaf.
