I made the following recipe for our Sunday dinner this week. Hubs and I usually cook together on Sundays so I prepared the meatloaf and he was responsible for the veggies. I found the recipe on Pinterest, it comes from Can you stay for dinner? It's been a few months since I've made meatloaf and I had all of the ingredients for this one at home. The meatloaf was quick to make. The only thing I would change next time is add more breadcrumbs. Other than that, it was delicious. I served it with roasted veggies (zucchini, carrots, sweet potatoes and potatoes). We coated the veggies with 1 tsp olive oil, a tsp of garlic and a few dashes of salt, pepper and oregano. I baked them under the meatloaf for the full 45 minutes. About 10 minutes before I took them out, I sprinkled parmesan cheese on top.
Honey Barbecue Meatloaf
- serves 41 lb 90% lean ground beef
1 slice white bread, ground to crumbs in food processor -or- ½ cup panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
3/4 cup smoky barbecue sauce, divided
2 tablespoons honey, divided
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepperToss one slice of soft white bread in your food processor and grind it into crumbs.
In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together the ground beef, fresh bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce, the spicy brown mustard, 1/2 cup of the barbecue sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, salt, and black pepper.
Shape the mixture into a long, thick log and place in an oiled baking dish. Be careful not to pack the meat too tightly or you’ll end up with a very dense, tough loaf.
In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, and 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce. Spread half of this mixture evenly all over the meatloaf. Reserve the other half for serving.
Bake for 45 minutes. Slice and drizzle with reserved honey barbecue sauce.
