BBQ Meatloaf

<!–[if !mso]>st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } <![endif]–>I happened across a menu item called BBQ Meatloaf that was created originally by Paula Deen, a noted restaurateur and famous chef, and thought I’d give it a try. The ingredient list was very doable and I had most everything on hand.

1 ½ pounds of ground beef
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 onion, diced
1 egg, lightly beaten
½ bell pepper (added by me)
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
16 ounces of tomato sauce
3 tbsp. vinegar
3 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup water if needed
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix the beef with the breadcrumbs, onion, bell pepper, salt, pepper and about half the tomato sauce. Form this into a loaf and place it in a shallow pan. Stir together the remaining tomato sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce and pour this over the meatloaf. Bake for 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes with the pan juices.
Now that’s what I’m talking about!

I did manage to follow this recipe pretty closely with the exception of that last part concerning the remaining tomato sauce. Rather than mix all that other stuff into the sauce, I elected to add it directly to the meatloaf. The only things that were poured over the loaf was that remaining sauce and some vinegar.

The end result was a nice looking meatloaf that tasted awesome! I also made a mental note to stop at the store and get a loaf of plain white bread so that I could enjoy one of life’s greatest pleasures….a meatloaf sandwich! Give this recipe a try! It’s easy to make and oh so good to eat!
