Meatloaf is a family staple going way back before Alice on the Brady bunch was stopping off at the butcher shop to visit with Sam to pickup 10 lbs of ground beef at a time for the family meatloaf. It’s been a family staples for years equally wonderful served cold, sliced on sandwich as well as hot with mashed potatoes and gravy.

This wonderful loaf is an upscale version of the usual that’s out there. I’ve added some fresh peppers and onions, with BBQ sauce and a few more flavorful side ingredients. Please feel free to add in or change the recipe as you see fit to create something deliciously comfortable for your family.

How to Make BBQ Meatloaf

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Combine the beef, pork, breadcrumbs, pepper and onion, 1/3-cup barbecue sauce, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Shape meat mixture into a 9 x 5-inch loaf on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Spread remaining barbecue sauce over top of meat loaf, and bake at 350° F for 1 hour or until a thermometer registers 160°.
  4. To get the best flavor remove the meatloaf from the oven ½ way through the cooking process to drain off the fat and return to the oven to cook until finished.
