BBQ Meatloaf

A few years ago my Mom turned me on to the most  delicious meatloaf recipe ever from The Lady & Sons cookbook! I was never a huge meatloaf fan until this recipe.  My husband loves it and it is so yummy on a cozy cold night when you are looking for some good comfort food!  I made it a few nights ago and meant to take a picture to share but we devoured it before I got one!  Here is the recipe..


1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 onion, diced
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce
3 tablespoons vinegar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup water, to thin sauce if necessary


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together the beef, bread crumbs, onion, egg, salt, pepper, and 1/2 cup of the tomato sauce. Form this mixture into a loaf and place it in a shallow pan. Stir together the remaining tomato sauce, vinegar, sugar, mustard, Worcestershire and the water (if too thick). Pour this sauce over the meatloaf. Bake for 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes with the pan juices.

I always double the sauce mixture cause I like things saucy, I also find that it needs to cook for a little bit longer than recommended (like an additional 10 minutes).  Hope you enjoy!
