The real title of this post should be “Mom’s Meatloaf,” as this is the very same recipe I grew up eating as a child. A perennial favorite in our household, few meatloaves deliver in the way this barbecue sauce-topped rendition does. The epitome of comfort, my Mom would be the first to tell you that this dish is “hard to screw up.” In fact, it’s the simplicity of this recipe that makes it a true standout in my mind. Perfect for company, yet quick and easy enough for a weeknight meal, this tender and juicy meatloaf comes together in no time and feeds a crowd for next to nothing. Covered with a sweet, tangy homemade barbecue sauce, this meatloaf is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters as few can resist it’s sticky, ketchup-like topping. If you love meatloaf but can’t justify the saturated fat, substitute ground turkey for a version that is just as tasty and quite a bit healthier — you’ll barely notice the difference. As good cold as it is served warm, this recipe also makes for a killer meatloaf sandwich. So, in a world filled with so much bad meatloaf, do yourself a favor and go with a tried-and-true recipe that works. Your family, friends and significant others will thank you.
