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.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium vidalia onion
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
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,
