It’s a Classic

As an American staple, meatloaf is one of the most versatile dishes you can make. Ground beef is typical..but there is also turkey, veal, deer, chicken..really any ground meat will do. You can go for the classic ‘beef and a bottle of Heinz’, or, add tons of veggies with marinara, or how about cheesy meatloaf? Really, how can you go wrong? My personal favorite..Texas Style

BBQ Meatloaf
1 pound lean (96%) ground beef
one medium chopped onion
2 eggs
1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
2 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 sleeves crushed saltine crackers**
BBQ Sauce:
1 cup ketchup
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
3 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 11X7 glass dish with cooking spray. In a medium bowl mix together all ingredients, one at a time, until incorporated. Pour mixture into the prepared glass dish and form into a loaf. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. Pull meatloaf out and pour BBQ sauce over top. Return loaf to the oven and heat through until sauce is bubbley, about 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow meatloaf to rest for 5 minutes before cutting to serve.

To make BBQ sauce: In a small bowl combine all ingredients, stirring quickly until brown sugar is dissovled.

**Regular bread crumbs can be used, and I have also used high fiber cereal (that I ground in my food processor) instead of saltines crackers.
