Classic Meat Loaf Recipe

Best Classic Meatloaf Recipe

Ingredients
2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
2 eggs
1/2 cup onion, diced
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp chopped parsley
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 cup bbq sauce (your favorite)

For the Topping:
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp yellow mustard

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with non-stick spray, then set aside.

In a large bowl combine the meatloaf ingredients and mix with clean hands, until fully combined. Press the meatloaf mixture into an 8" x 4" loaf on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 45 minutes, then remove from oven and increase oven temperature to 400 degrees.
Whisk together the topping ingredients, spread over the meatloaf and continue cooking for 10 to 15 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees in center.
Let meatloaf rest for about 5 to 10 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!

By using your own favorite bbq sauce you will probably get a different taste from mine. I found this recipe on Facebook and I tried it today and it was delicious, so just had to share it with you guys. I had mashed potatoes and green beans with mine. One of my favorite combinations of a meal.
