Cajun Meatloaf Grilling

Here is my version of a Cajun meatloaf! Packed with lots of flavor and opportunity to add even more. If you like your meatloaf with a bunch of heat, pour it on! The hot tomato ketchup ads a nice touch to this recipe and if you cook it just right, it will start to caramels on the top of your meatloaf … yum!
