Sweet and Spicy Cajun Style Meatloaf with Bacon.

We made Cajun Meatloaf the other night after we were done hitting up our local Safeway for the stock up sale.

The chilly weather and torrential down pour of rain left me craving comfort food. Of course we didn't plan dinner while we were out shopping. Luckily, I had picked up everything I needed for Meatloaf except Oatmeal, or breadcrumbs, so I subbed them out with crushed up Cheerios™. Luckily it worked like a charm, and the kids didn't even know the difference.

Make sure to take advantage of the just for U® savings tool which is a feature found within the Safeway app. It will save you from having to clip coupons, plus they almost always have a deal that is only available on the app. It's saved us a lot of money since we started using it.

I always love when I have a cupboard full of great products with multiple uses. It saves me time and money.
I love shopping at my local Safeway for the Stock Up Sale.  It means I can get all my favorites from General Mills, Cocoa-Cola, Kraft, and Nabisco at a great value.

Are you ready to make Cajun Meatloaf?

Add 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Perfect Pinch Cajun Seasoning, and mix until well combined.
Place into a pan, and shape into a loaf.

Tip: Meatloaf can be cooked on the top of a lined broiler pan, so the grease drains into the bottom, if preferred.
For the Cajun Barbecue Sauce stir until well combined 1 cup Heinz Ketchup, 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar, 1 tablespoon Floridas Natural 100% Orange Juice, 1 teaspoon McCormick Perfect Pinch Cajun Seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon Molasses, and 1/4 teaspoon Salt.

Cover with 6 strips of Bacon. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 mins.
