The Most Amazing Barbeque Meatloaf

Happy Friday Everyone!

One of my favorite recipes is BBQ Meatloaf. This recipe originated via Paula Deen....I made some adjustments to fit my 'diet' and tastes. I swear it is the BEST meatloaf EVER. (Okay, that is MY opinion...but you know I think a LOT of my opinions! ;)) I have made this recipe quite a few times now, but Wednesday night's meatloaf turned out the absolute best!

Betsy's Barbeque Meatloaf Muffins
Serving Size: 2 Muffins
Servings Per Recipe: 7

1.5 lbs ground chuck (20% fat) - DO NOT use 7% fat - TRUST me. It will be dry (at least mine was)!
1 onion chopped (I cooked these in the microwave for ~2 min or until soft)
1 cup italian bread crumbs
1 egg - lightly beaten
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 15 oz canned tomato sauce
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
2 tablespoons vinegar
3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons splenda brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Wisk together the tomato sauce, vinegar, splenda brown sugar, and dijon mustard, worcestershire sauce. (I pre-mix the homemade bbq sauce the night before to make for a quick assembly the next day!) Mix together the beef, bread crumbs, onion, egg, salt, pepper, and homemade barbeque sauce. Put the beef mixture into muffin tins (I get 14 'muffins' per batch). Pour this sauce over the meatloaf muffins. (I normally put a 'hole' using my finger in each muffin prior to pouring the sauce. Bake for ~45 minutes or until cooked through.

Doesn't this look AMAZING?

I served these with a slice of corn bread and fresh green beans sauteed with garlic, salt and pepper, and some 'butter' spread.

These have some pretty impressive stats and are filling (not to mention amazingly delicious)!

  1. Hi! Visiting from MFP. That looks delicious! Meatloaf is one of my favorite "go to" comfort meals, and we have it all the time. I will definitely try this version.
