The Best Meatloaf Recipe Ever
This IS the best meatloaf recipe ever…according to my son. It’s my own modification of a Boston Market Meatloaf recipe knockoff that I found online years ago. There are no ‘slimy onion chunks’ or bell peppers, and you won’t even need any eggs or ketchup for this one. It’s kinda’ special and unique!
Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 c. tomato sauce
  • 1 ½ T. BBQ sauce (Original or Hickory Smoke flavors are great)
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1 ½ lb. Ground sirloin (10% fat)
  • 6 T. flour
  • ⅔ c. oatmeal
  • ¾ t. salt
  • ½ t. onion powder
  • ¼ t. pepper
  • dash garlic powder
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Combine tomato sauce, sugar and BBQ sauce in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir often until it begins to bubble. Remove from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, add oats, flour, salt, onion powder, pepper, and garlic powder.
  4. Once the sauce bubbles, reserve ¼ cup of the sauce for a loaf, or ⅓ c. for the muffins.
  5. Add the rest of the sauce to the meat.
  6. Mix with a wooden spoon or your hands until well blended.
  7. Place into a loaf pan or a silicone lined muffin tin, and make a small indent in the center of each one for the sauce later.
  8. Cover with foil.
  9. Bake for 30 minutes for a loaf, or 20 minutes for muffins.
  10. Remove pan and drain any fat.
  11. If making a loaf, slice all the way through into 8 slices.
  12. Pour remaining sauce over the top of the slices or muffins in a ribbon down the center (don’t spread it out).
  13. Place back in oven, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes.
I like to double this and freeze the remaining slices individually on a cookie sheet.
Once frozen, put slices into a freezer bag. They re-heat easily this way and make great leftovers!
