Recipe Friday: Barbecue Meatloaf

"Meatloaf just doesn't get any respect. It never has been able to rise above the rank of  'home cooked meal.'"  From Once a Chef

Although I love exotic, spicy cuisines, I adore comfort food! Remember all those wonderful meals your mom used to make back in the olden days?

When I was a kid, I hated meatloaf! But now I love it, I guess because it reminds me of the good old days--the days when I wasn't doing the cooking!

I have several meatloaf recipes, but this one, from The Cincinnati Enquirer, is a favorite! It's quick, easy to prep, cheap, and really delicious! Hope you like it!

Barbecue Meatloaf

1/2 cup chopped onion
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup plus 2 T BBQ sauce, divided
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1 t Dijon mustard (or regular mustard)
1 t minced garlic
1/2 t dried thyme

Heat oven to 350.  Microwave onion 1 minute on high. Combine cooked onion, turkey, beef, crumbs, 1/2 cup BBQ sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic and thyme. Mix. Spoon into 9x4 inch loaf pan. Brush with remaining BBQ sauce. Bake 50-60 minutes. Cover and let stand 10 minutes. Slice and serve. Makes 10 slices.

I'm still new to eating meats and don't have a favorite meatloaf. I do have a favorite bacon though, Coleman uncured. Num num num.

Meatloaf is a favorite with my guys. You can make it so many different ways. I add salsa and cheese for a Mexican meatloaf.

It's so so good. And not over-salted. Love it.

Maria McKenzie said...

@Ssanne: That sounds good! I've made Italian meatloaf, but I've never tried Mexican.

@Happy Whisk: I'll have to see if I can find it around here!
