Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 1/2 lbs ground beef (ground shoulder roast is good)
1 slice bread (broken or chopped finely)
1 egg
1 small Vidalia onion or type sweet onion, finely chopped
1 small green pepper finely chopped
1 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 tablespoons ketchup

2 Mozzarella Cheese sticks

Sauce

4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2-4 tablespoons dark brown sugar, packed firm (to taste)
1/2 cup ketchup

Directions:
Directions:
Meatloaf: Combine 1/2 of meat loaf ingredients and place into a loaf baking dish. Then put down the mozzarella cheese sticks and cover with the rest of the meat. Smooth out top.
Sauce: Combine sauce ingredients and pour on top and sides of meatloaf. Bake at 350°F about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until done. ENJOY!
*The addition of 1 or 2 teaspoons of Kitchen Bouquet® makes this recipe very good.
**Recipe should be"plump" from the addition of the milk or Half & Half. It should NOT be runny.
***A second batch of sauce served hot is good to serve with the meatloaf.
Nita's Note: I note that some of you are using game meat such as deer -- Deer is a very DRY meat. It is wise to HAVE some fat added to the deer -- especially to ground deer. Maybe 25 % fat, otherwise your results will be poor. I don't know about some of the other game meat some are using. Please consult and expert. The recipe is delicious as it stands! Enjoy!

This recipe is from www.recipezaar.com. I get a lot of my recipes from this site. It is probably the best meat loaf I have ever had! It has 602 five star reviews on this site. I have easily doubled this recipe for larger crowds! If you double it, you can just fill up a 9x13 pan and a small loaf pan. :)
