Total Time

I came up with this recipe out of frustration at so many meatloaf recipes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the meat loaf, combine bread, egg, barbecue sauce, garlic, pepper and chopped onion. Crumble pork and beef over top and mix well with hands or wooden spoon.
  2. Place in a loaf pan and bake at 350F, 175C for an hour or until fully cooked. Let rest or sit for 5 minutes and drain off any fat.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the sliced onion in a little water on medium heat until lightly golden. Add more water if necessary to prevent sticking.
  4. Add barbecue sauce and sugar and mix well. Simmer on low heat until thick.
  5. Pour topping over cooked meatloaf or serve along side meatloaf.

I couldnt make the topping because I only had one onion so my review is for the meatloaf only. It didnt have alot of grease which was nice but it was also a bit dry. I did serve it with BBQ sauce which helped alot. My 6 yr old really enjoyed it. Thanks for an easy meatloaf recipe!

The tangy topping really makes this a special meat loaf recipe. I really liked it with the meat loaf.
