{Easy BBQ Meatloaf}

I have more elaborate recipes for meatloaf, but this Easy BBQ Meatloaf recipe is great for those days you don't have a game-plan.  You should already have most of the ingredients on-hand.  If not, they are inexpensive and quick to find.

1 lb ground beef
1 cup BBQ sauce (your choice of flavor)
1 cup bread crumbs
2 tbs dried minced onion
1 tbs garlic powder
1 egg (slightly beaten)

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Get your ground beef out of the fridge and let it warm up a bit.  (Don't worry, you aren't leaving it out for hours, you just don't want it to be super cold.  It's easier to mix when it's warmer.)

Meanwhile,  in a large bowl, mix BBQ sauce, bread crumbs, onion, garlic and egg until combined.  Add the ground beef.  Mix well.  I use my hands because it just gets everything incorporated better.

I usually just shape the meat into a loaf and bake on a jellyroll pan or cookie sheet that I have covered in foil.  However, you can also use a loaf pan.  Cook for 45-50 minutes, or until done.  Spread a little extra BBQ sauce on top and let sit for 5 minutes.

I have also made 4-6 mini meatloaves, reducing the cooking time to 20-25 minutes.

I like to serve with mashed potatoes and a green veggie.

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
