Best BBQ Meatloaf

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef (I recommend Certified Angus Beef® brand)
  • 1 TBS unsalted butter
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 24 saltine crackers
  • 1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 TBS chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


Preheat oven to 350°F. Melt butter in a large frying pan. Add onion and garlic; simmer until onions are transparent, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool. In a small mixing bowl combine barbecue sauce and mustard. Add half sauce mixture to onions.
Put crackers in a zip lock bag and crush with a rolling pin until coarse. (I used a food processor) In a large bowl cover cracker crumbs with buttermilk and let soak 5 minutes; mix in eggs and mash with a fork to oatmeal consistency. Add beef, onion mixture, cracker mixture, parsley, salt and pepper. Press into a 9 x 5 loaf on a broiler pan, lined with foil, and sprayed with cooking spray or onto a sheet pan with sides that has been covered in foil.
Bake for 1 hour or until internal temperature reaches 160°F degrees. Let rest 10-15 minutes loosely covered in foil. Transfer to a cutting board or platter, top with remaining sauce, slice and serve.
