Today’s guest post is from Andie at Can You Stay for Dinner? After you see all of her amazing photos, you’ll see why this recipe caught my eye on Pinterest! Her meatloaf makes your mouth water! Doesn’t it? Holy cow!
This is my take on meatloaf. A moist, smoky, and sweet rendition of one of my top ten favorite dishes. And the best part? This tender meatloaf only requires a handful of ingredients, is a cinch to throw together, and will be one more meal in your recipe arsenal that warrants mashed potatoes and barbecue sauce. Enjoy!
Toss one slice of soft white bread in your food processor and grind it into crumbs. The soft moisture from the bread will make for a really tender, juicy meatloaf. You can alternately use regular breadcrumbs, or panko, if you’d like.
Next, in a large bowl, use your hands to mix together 1 lb lean ground beef, the fresh bread crumbs, 1/2 cup of your favorite smoky barbecue sauce, 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard (or dijon), 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon ground 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.
Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Remove the meat from the oven and let it stand for 5 minutes.
Slice and drizzle with the reserved barbecue sauce. Serve with mashed cauliflower and salad.
