"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Directions:
Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Use 9x12" baking dish, spray with cooking spray, then lay down pieces of bread in two rows on the bottom of the dish (bread will serve to absorb any grease from meat during cooking)
In a large mixing bowl add ALL Meatloaf ingredients listed above and mix well (I use my hands to mix everything together) and set aside
In a small mixing bowl or dish add all sauce ingredients as listed above and mix well
IF COOKING RIGHT AWAY:
Divide meatloaf meat mix in two, form two "loaves"
Place each loaf on top of the bread already in your baking dish
Divide sauce in half and spread on top of each "loaf"
Place in oven for 75mins
IF FREEZING:
I take two disposable metal bread Loaf pans spray the bottoms
place two pieces of bread flat onto the bottom of each pan. divide meatloaf mix. Place divided meatloaf mix into each pan and form meat into a "loaf"
Top each loaf with half of the prepared sauce mix. Cover with plastic wrap and then a layer of foil. Can freeze up to three months.
When ready to cook: pull out and defrost in the fridge overnight
preheat oven to 350
remove foil and plastic wrap
Bake right in a metal pan for 75mins


** That's it looks lengthy but really is pretty easy to prepare and tastes SOOO GOOD!

** I pair this with some mashed potatoes and corn and Dinner is served
