Mom's Barbecued Meatloaf

By • December 18, 2013 • 1 Comments



Author Notes: This is the recipe I grew up with...it's a nice moist meatloaf (nothing dry here!) with the MOST delicious sweet and sour tomato sauce. It's the ultimate comfort food, especially when served with mashed potatoes!amybroun

Serves 4-6

  • 1.25-1.5 pounds ground beef, veal or turkey
  • 3/4 cups breadcrumbs
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • dash pepper
  • 2 cups your favorite jarred tomato sauce
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Mix together meat, bread crumbs, onion, egg, seasonings, and 1/2 cup of the tomato sauce.
  3. Form into a loaf and put into pan (a 9x5 loaf pan works best but make sure it is big enough to hold all the sauce, as it will bubble up).
  4. Combine rest of tomato sauce, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, and worcestershire sauce. Pour over meat loaf.
  5. Bake for 1 hr 15 min, basting occasionally with sauce.
  6. Remove to serving plate. Slice and serve. Pass sauce from pan on the side!
