Honey BBQ Meatloaf

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.

  1. i just made this and am so disappointed. mine was all mushy and nothing like normal meat loaf. inside temp was 180 so i know it was done. i don’t if it was because i used a glass pan but im so disappointed.

    The first time I made it mine also came out runny and mooshy and I only use glass cookware. I I made it a second time today in a glass pan as usual but made sure to really keep an eye on my measurements. It’s really easy to go overboard when your rushing around the kitchen. I took my time and made it for lunch this go around and it came out perfect! It doesn’t come out like my normal meatloaf. It is softer but it wasn’t a sloppy mess this time. Jennifer if at first you don’t succeed try try again :-)

    I made this tonight and Mine came out mushy… I used a metal pan and measured everything and didn’t even use all the bbq spread for the top because it was already too runny! My husband said it was like bbq meatballs smooched out! Tasted good but texture was not so good

    Made this tonight. The taste was delicious, but the texture was more sloppy-joe-like instead of firm like meatloaf. I noticed that there aren’t any breadcrumbs of any sort in this recipe … I’m not a good freelancer in the kitchen, so I wouldn’t be sure exactly how much to add if I wanted to. I guess I could start with a 1/2 cup. I hope more people make this and add their comments. :)

    Panko is a type of Japanese breadcrumb and my most favorite! It’s in oven now, can’t wait to taste it!

    I have made this several times as it is written above and yes, mine has also come out mushy. I think it may be due to there being no bonding agent (egg). Any thoughts on adding an egg?? I want to try it but am nervous to ruin it completely. However, when I think about it, every other meatloaf recipe I have ever made calls for an egg or two…..hmmm….

    I just tried making this tonight….I was so excited to try a meatloaf recipe other than my own. This one was different and sounded great. I must say I wondered about it not saying to add egg but I followed the recipe anyways. IT TURNED OUT AWFUL!!! Similar to other ladies, mine was mushy like I’ve never seen ground beef be…I’m a texture person so needless to say this was bad…I’m sorry but bad enough to not even try again.

    I made this tonight and it turned out great! I was nervous given the other comments about it being mushy so I did add an egg and normal bread crumbs along with the panko, I also used ground turkey and it had great flavor and a normal meatloaf texture. :)
