I really liked this meatloaf. I found the ingredients amounts sort of odd, esp. the onions though. I only had 1 lb of ground beef, so I could only make 1/2 recipe which was fine. I used Trader Joes 96% lean ground beef and their Kansas City BBQ sauce. I think the salsa was ChiChis brand, just a simple basic salsa. I finely minced the white onion, being as there wasn't much. I am glad I did, because after one hour of baking they were still oddly sort of crunchy. Unless, that was the salsa. I didn't have wheat bread, but I had parmesan bread sticks from Sam's club. For 1/2 the recipe I just used 1/2 of a bread stick. I didn't soak it in water. I just poured the salsa on top while I measured out the rest of the ingredients. I didn't have to do the draining part as my ground beef was so lean. I baked it in an oval shape in a foil lined pan I sprayed with cooking spray. It seemed done after an hour. I sprinkled it with a little garlic salt and topped with the bbq sauce. I probably added a bit more bbq sauce than suggested. I have never added that, that I can think of to a meatloaf, and liked that. I put it back in the oven for 5-7 minutes with the oven turned off. This was easy for a last minute meal. I would make it again. A nice change to salty seasoning packets. With the salsa and bbq sauce it is a little bit different though than the usual beef gravy type meatloaf. 1/2 the recipe, made as written here, yielded 4 good sized servings at about 220 calories each. ty
