Honey BBQ Meatloaf

I have a basic meatloaf recipe that a co-worker gave me and it has been my favorite for quite a while.  In fact, it is the only meatloaf recipe I used until I spotted this little number at Mommy‚Äôs Kitchen.   Honey barbecue is my favorite kind of barbecue flavor and since my father-in-law and his cousin actually have bee hives and I have honey that produced by bees buzzing around in my backyard and the fields next door, I just have to try it. 

Wow, it turned out so good.  You get a little sweetness from the honey, but still have the kick of the barbecue sauce and mustard.  Yummy!  If you live in the South Central Kentucky area and would like some local honey, just e-mail me and I will hook you up.
