Honestly, the only meatloaf that I have ever tried is my Grandma's meatloaf . . . and it is seriously divine.
I came across this recipe and it sounded pretty good; I love honey, I love barbecue, and if it was anything close to my grandma's recipe, it had to be good.
I whipped this up for dinner and it was a winner! The flavor was the perfect combination of honey and BBQ . . . definitely comfort food at it's finest!
I still am partial to my grandma's recipe, but this is close second and I will make it again for sure!
Honey Barbecue Meatloaf
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
3/4 cup your favorite barbecue sauce, divided
2 tablespoons honey, divided
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together the ground beef, panko bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, spicy brown mustard, 1/2 cup of the barbecue sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, salt, and black pepper.
Shape the mixture into a long, thick log and place a 8x4" loaf pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, and 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce. Spread half of this mixture evenly all over the meatloaf. Reserve the other half for serving.
Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F. Slice and drizzle with reserved honey barbecue sauce.
Serves 4-5 people.
