Serve this classic for lunch or dinner with sweet potato tots and broccoli slaw, as we did here. Meatloaf slices piled high with pickles and condiments also make great lunch box–worthy sandwiches. (Don’t forget the extra SmartPoints.) You can also make this as eight single-serve mini meatloaves. Just divide the meat among eight cups of a mini loaf pan, top with barbecue sauce, and bake until cooked through, about 20 minutes. Leftovers freeze well, for up to 3 months in an airtight container, and come in handy for quick sandwiches.
