BBQ Meat Loaf

Prep time: 20 minutes. Baking Time: 1.5 hours

1.5 – 2 pounds of ground beef or turkey (or a mixture of both
1 cup bread crumbs (I use Italian seasoned bread crumbs)
1 diced onion
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
2 – 8 ounce cans tomato sauce
3 Tablespoons vinegar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
(or if you don’t want to bother with the last 4 ingredients, bottled BBQ sauce...)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together (I use my hands) the raw meat, bread crumbs, onion, egg salt and pepper and ½ cup of the tomato sauce. Place meat mixture in an oval mound in the middle of a 13 x 9 x 2 glass pan. Stir together remaining ingredients and pour on top of meatloaf. Bake 1 hour for 1.5 lbs of meat and 1.5 hours for 2 lbs of meat, basting occasionally with pan juices. If it spatters in the oven you can put a foil “tent” on top.

tip: I use disposable rubber gloves for messy mixing jobs like this!

(Can be prepped ahead and refrigerated in the morning or the night before. Since all ingredients are cold, the cooking time may need to be extended)

Serves: 6
