I give this recipe high marks for it's great flavor and relative ease to make. I do have a few substitutions I made however. I use fresh basil, oregano, and finely minced fresh garlic. One other substitution is Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce instead of ketchup it seems to add a certain zest that I prefer. I use the fresh vs powder because I grow these herbs. I also add two extra strips of bacon across the top and weave them into the slices coming up and around the meatloaf. (I like bacon) :) PS: In order to not have it be greasy use one of the new meatloaf pans with a rack so you can lift it out easily plus it can be raised slightly to allow the bacon grease to drip to the bottom of the pan away from the meatloaf.
