Since that time, the restaurants have worked to stay true to their original mission: to provide wholesome, home-style meals at an affordable price for families. Their BBQ Meatloaf is no exception. This recipe features a basic template for you to produce a Piccadilly BBQ Meatloaf at home, complete with your own personal twists.
Imagine this: You're 12 years old and you come home from school on a gloomy, rainy day. After sloshing around in giant puddles all day, all you really want to do is curl with a blanket and sit in front of the fireplace...with your homework, of course (thanks Mom!). It seems like hours have passed by when Mom's "Dinner!" call finally reaches your ears. You walk up to the table and what do you see, sitting in a big bowl with steam rising toward the ceiling? SPAGHETTI. The perfect comfort food.
