Best Ever Homestyle Meatloaf

Recommended Posts

This is better-than-mom's-meatloaf meatloaf. I have been experimenting for a while to get this right with no breadcrumbs and I finally nailed it!

My kids are bitter that I'm not putting the usual BBQ sauce/ketchup glaze on the top of my meatloaf.

Have to figure out how to duplicate that sweet kick without the honey.

I made a great BBQ sauce with applesauce as the sweetener, and my nephew thought it was great. I think it was from the It Starts With Food book. I spent the next week dipping chicken strips in it every chance I got.

The secret to making sweet, but sugarless ketchup is to make it straight from sweet, ripe tomatoes and removing the seeds (those are bitter). It is a pain in the butt to do, but if you do a big batch in the summer you can have it all year round.

This meatloaf looks awesome! I will have to try it.

Tried this last night. It was awesome!! Had the parents and grandma over and no one was the wiser. My dad 'hates' mushrooms and didn't even pick up on them! Definitely a keeper. Thank you Johnny M!

Yeah, also wondering if I mis-converted something from US to metric.

Next question : ) I asked on your blog but will pester you here too. How long would the sauce/ketchup keep do you reckon?

I made up the rest of the tomato past I bought for this into sauce for my kids to use.

AMAZING!!!! Made it into cupcakes though. Could not believe how moist they were. So much juice in the pan I poured over cut up leftovers. Kids loved them. Hubby told me he hates meatloaf so when he asked what it was I said beef cupcakes... even he was fooled and enjoyed dinner as well as leftovers for work lunches! One girl at work came over twice when I brought them (for breakfast one day, lunch another) asking what the awesome smell was. Won't bother testing other recipes!
