Meatloaf

This Easy Meatloaf is a favorite in my house. When we want a compassionate, super moist and totally delicious meatball, we always use the recipe!


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 large onion finely chopped or grated
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs I used Panko
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce I used Guy Fieri’s Sweet and Smoky Kansas Style BBQ sauce
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper or to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Grate the onion (if not using chopped) in a large bowl. Add the breadcrumbs and the milk and stir it together. Add the rest of the ingredients but only add about 3/4 cup of the barbecue sauce to the meat mixture. Mix the entire meat mixture really well using your hands or a spoon.
  3. Add the meat mixture to the prepared loaf pan and shape it into a loaf. Brush with the remaining barbecue sauce over the top of the meatloaf.
  4. Bake for 60 to 80 minutes or until done. Best way to tell when a meatloaf is done is to use an instant-read thermometer. Insert the thermometer into the meatloaf and when it reaches 160 degrees F, it’s done.
  5. Let it sit for 10 minutes before slicing into it.

RECIPE NOTES

Note: Video is missing Worcestershire sauce, please add that to the recipe.

To get that gravy that you can see in the video that I’m drizzling over the meatloaf, all I did was mix the pan juices with some more BBQ sauce and it’s to die for!

Tip: Place the loaf pan on a baking sheet as you bake the meatloaf so as not to get your oven dirty.

Serve this over creamy mashed potatoes.
