I'm always on the lookout for the perfect meatloaf recipe. There are some great ones, and many terrible ones, out there on the interwebs. Finally, after a lot of experimentation and more than my fair share of flops, I think I've come up with a great meatloaf recipe all on my own. Here it is:
2 lbs. 85% lean ground beef
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
Mix together until well blended. Divide and place into two loaf pans (or keep it all together in a larger dish). Bake at 350F for 45-60 minutes (longer if it's all together in the same dish). For the last 10 minutes of baking, cover the surface with a nice layer of ketchup. Enjoy! And please report your results--I'm anxious to know if I have indeed created the perfect meatloaf recipe.
Note: please use ketchup, not catsup...this is an important distinction. Using 'catsup' will tear a whole in the fabric of the universe and interrupt the entire space-time continuum, which leads to really, really bad meatloaf. Thank you.
