Manly Meatloaf

recipe inspired by Rachel Ray's Smoky Beer Burgers
yields 4 to 6 servings
2 lbs meatloaf mix (ground beef,veal, & pork)
1 medium onion,
1/2 bottle of beer
3/4 lb of smoked gouda, cut into small cubes
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1-2 tablespoons grill seasonings
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 egg
1-15oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup BBQ sauce (your pick)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with non-stick spray. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients above except BBQ sauce & tomato sauce. Grate onion right into bowl to include all the juices. Mix well and mold into a loaf on the baking pan. In a smaller bowl, mix BBQ sauce with tomato sauce. Use 1/2 of the sauce to coat the top of the meatloaf. Bake for about 45 minutes. Warm the remainder of the sauce on the stove or in the microwave. Serve with the BBQ Tomato Sauce and Perfect Mashed Potatoes.
