Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef – I used 80% lean
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion – fine chopped
  • 1 Tbs. Worcestershire
  • 2 tsp. prepared mustard
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3 thin slices of bread – cut into small cubes – crust removed, if desired
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg – lightly whisked

Topping

  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • Plus more for serving, if desired

Recipe:

In a small bowl, pour off the milk over the bread cubes. Set aside.

In a separate small bowl, combine the ketchup, onion, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

To a large bowl, Take the ground beef.

Beat the egg in another small bowl.

Now add ketchup/onion mixture, egg, and milk-soaked bread cubes in the large beef bowl.

Using your hands or a fork, mix well until thoroughly combined. Do not squeeze or mash the meat or the meatloaf will be dense. The mixture should be very moist.

Place meat on the baking sheet or baking dish and form into a 9×5 loaf. If using a loaf pan, place 2 pieces of bread on the bottom, before adding the meat.

In a separate small bowl, combine the ketchup and barbecue sauce. Pour over the top of the meatloaf and spread evenly.

Bake at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. Remove baking sheet from oven and let meatloaf rest on the pan for about 10 minutes before cutting.

Slice and serve with additional ketchup-barbecue sauce or topped with my Mushroom Gravy.
