I don't make your traditional dry, flavorless meatloaf, blah. I like food with wonderful aroma and delicious melt in your mouth flavor. My whole family loves this recipe. I usually make homemade mashed potatoes, a creamy mac and cheese, and garlic green beans to go with it, oh and some dinner rolls. Enjoy!!!
townhouse crackers crushed
mustard, spicy brown
seasonal salt (i use mccormicks due to it is not completely salt)
1 1/2 Tbsp
1 1/4 tsp
ground black pepper
BARBEQUE SAUCE ~
brown sugar, lightly packed (heaping tablespoons)
mustard, spicy brown
1Preheat oven to 300 degree's.
Use non-stick cooking spray and coat a deep dish baking pan.
Mix all meatloaf ingredients thoroughly by hand (make sure hands are clean, or you can wear gloves if you had prefer to). If it is too dry or too stiff add a little more ketchup, teriyaki, spicy brown mustard, and Worcestershire. (I usually just add a little at a time so as to not over do it).
2Place meatloaf in baking pan, I usually shape it to form something similuar to a football but not completely, and about 2-3 inches thick throughout, place in preheated oven and let cook about 1 1/2 hours, checking it periodically in between due to some ovens tend to cook faster or slower than others.
3While meatloaf is cooking you can mix up and set aside the homemade barbeque sauce for it.
Combine all sauce ingredients, whisking well to help break up the brown sugar. Taste test the sauce, if it taste to sugary, add more ketchup and the other ingredients until it is perfect for your taste. Set aside till meatloaf is almost done.
Also get ready any side dishes you plan to have with it. Early prep of some items makes it easier to get it all done at the same time.
4About 1/2 hour before meatloaf is done, remove from the oven and drain off any grease or fat that has cooked out of the meat, spread the barbeque sauce across the top of the meatloaf. Place back in the oven for the remaining 30 minutes.
5Prepare the sides that you like to have or use the ones I described. Hope you and your family enjoy it.
