One of our favorite dinners is Meatloaf. Baked potatoes and baked beans make excellent side dishes with this meal. 

2 lbs hamburger (I have also made this with 1 pound ground pork and 1 pound hamburger) 
3/4 cup bread crumbs
2 eggs
1 Tablespoon Parmesan cheese
1 Tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chopped bacon pieces (optional) 
1/4 cup chopped onions
salt and pepper

1/4-1/2 cup Open Pit barbecue sauce
2 Tablespoons ketchup
1 Tablespoon brown sugar

Mix the ingredients (minus the topping ingredients) together with your hands. 

Place in a baking dish. Bake for about 40 minutes at 375 degrees. Meanwhile, mix the topping together in a bowl. 
Drain most of the grease out of the pan. Spread the topping on top of the baked meatloaf and bake for 5 more minutes. 

Some of the members of my family just like the meatloaf plain, so I only spread the sauce on half of the meatloaf.
