Now that we got the preliminaries over with, on to my recipe



1 tablespoon olive oil

1 medium vidalia onion

3 tablespoons barbecue sauce

2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

meatloaf mix

1/2 cup bread crumbs

2 large eggs

1/2 cup ketchup

1/4 cup brown sugar


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Heat the olive oil in a medium saute pan.

Add the onions and cook stirring occasionally until they are soft, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Add the barbecue sauce and allow to cool slightly.

In a large bowl combine the salt, pepper, meatloaf mix, bread crumbs and eggs. Mix to combine. Place into a grease 9 inch loaf pan.

In a small bowl combine the ketchup and brown sugar. Spread over the top of the meatloaf evenly. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. The internal temperature should read 160.

Note: a pan of water placed under the meatloaf makes it moist and delicious

Peace be with you,
