Sweet and Spicy Meatloaf

This recipe comes from my best friend’s father.  He made this dish all the time when we were growing up.  I would either be invited for dinner, or I would receive leftovers. Hands down, this is the BEST meatloaf I’ve ever eaten.  The sauce is added to the meat and then layered on top to make it incredibly juicy and full of flavor.
