Food Talk Friday: Meatloaf

My meatloaf is amazing. I’m not bragging, just stating a fact. I get compliments whenever I take it to someone needing a meal or when we serve it to guests.

My two secrets:

  • I use a mixture of ground beef and ground pork
  • I use lots of BBQ sauce instead of ketchup or tomato sauce

I don’t have a picture of my own meatloaf and it seems creepy and disingenuous to post a picture of someone else’s, so this recipe will have to be picture-free. Until the next time I make meatloaf.

Carrie’s Amazing Meatloaf

1 lb. ground beef

1 lb. ground pork

About 1/2 C bread crumbs

Two eggs

1 medium red onion, chopped

About 1 1/2 C your favorite bottled BBQ sauce (I use whatever is on sale, or Kraft original)

Mix together thoroughly with your hands. Add more bread crumbs if you don’t like the consistency.

Mold together and place in a good size casserole dish.

Top the meatloaf with another 1/2 cup of sauce.

Bake at 350 degrees, 45 minutes to an hour. Drain off any fat accumulating in the corner.

Enjoy! It also makes great meatloaf sandwiches the next day!

  1. I think I must try this. I love my ML recipe, too. It uses Lipton’s Beef Onion (dry) soup packet and just a little ketchup, bread crumbs, eggs. It’s really good. It would be fun to have a ML potluck competition, huh?
