    Aww, my pleasure Rachel-I still make meatloaf in the summer because my family loves it so much. Can't wait till you try it out. The cheese really makes this delish!

    Hi Linda, I read every recipe for meatloaf I see. You'rs is one of my favorites because you cut the cheese in chunks and the rest is a lot like mine. I will be trying your trick with the cheese as soon as it gets cool enough to put my oven on in my kitchen. Thanks for sharing. I gave it 5 stars and voted up and pinned it.

    Blessings to you.

    Oh Kim-I feel so bad for your tummy and for teasing you with this meat loaf. Just let this recipe motivate you for when you come back from surgery and can eat food like this again. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers that all goes smooth as silk.

    Linda,

    This was torture. Let me explain. I LOVE MEATLOAF. And after August 7th (the day I am to have me gall bladder removed), I will be trying out this recipe. I, too like the BBQ addition. In the meantime, my gut is so wrenched that I am just trying to keep from becoming dehydrated. Pinned for sure.

    Blessings,

    Kim

    Many years ago I used ketchup, but after tweaking this recipe, threw it out and used barbeque sauce. Cheers back to you :)

    The BBQ sauce sounds like an interesting replacement/alternative for the standard bombardment of ketchup; cheers!

    I am very picky, Linda, when it comes to meatloaf. So if your recipe is as tasty as you describe and moist, then I am a fan. Thanks for the heads-up recipe which I shall try. Promise.

    Paula-I'm laughing right now with your comment about meatloaf, 'the band'. When I was looking up a quote about meatloaf, it sent me to the website of the band 'Meatloaf'. LOL

    Shauna-your so right about not overdoing it with barbeque sauce. Although I mix some in the loaf itself and a little on top, I don't overload it. Dry meat loaf or one overloaded with any ingredient, is one way to ruin a good meat loaf.

    I, too love meatloaf. Perhaps your recipe will taste better than my ex-husband's. He put bbq sauce in and on top of his. I didn't care for it; the bbq sauce overtook the other flavors. Yours doesn't have much, so I may like this version.

    Hi BPop-there's nothing worse than a dry meat loaf. Mine is always really moist and scrumptious. Hope you try this recipe-I promise you'll love it.

    I love meatloaf, so I really appreciate the recipe. The last time I made a meatloaf, I used grass fed beef and the loaf came out very dry.
