Meatloaf

This meatloaf is amazingly delicious! It is super moist and has a glaze that is kind of sweet and tangy at the same time.

 


In order to make great meatloaf you need to know a few things. I like to mix my meat and use meat with more fat content. If you use lean cuts of meat you will get a dry meatloaf and no one wants that. You also kinda have to  have a light hand when you mix it up. If you mix to much it also makes the meatloaf tough.

I like to use barbecue sauce inside my meatloaf and put the sauce on top before baking. It makes the sauce kind of sticky and sweet. I also put a pan of water in the oven to also keep the meatloaf moist.

Meatloaf

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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,
