BBQ Oatmeal Meatloaf Recipe

BBQ Oatmeal Meatloaf Recipe

“Yuck! Meatloaf!?” Those were my Editors first words when I told him I was working on this recipe. Truth is people love the stuff, myself included. It has a long history like most traditional foods now ingrained in to American culture (originally coming from Germany & Belgium) but all I care about is the flexibility of an endless list of ingredients you can include and of course it’s delicious and comforting taste. Here is a recipe for just one of my favorite meatloafs. – Darius Bass

INGREDIENTS

2 pounds of ground beef

¾ pounds breakfast sausage

1 onion chopped

2 carrots shredded

2 tablespoons of brown sugar

3 eggs

1-½ cups of barbeque sauce (see Real Food Real Kitchens guest Chris Edge-Johnsons Cola Q Sauce recipe HERE for home made BBQ sauce)

1-cup oats or more if desired

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375 degree F 190 degrees C

Mix the ground beef sausage, onion, carrots, brown sugar, egg and barbeque sauce together in a large mixing bow until thoroughly combined.

Stir in enough oats to make the mixture hold together, you can use up to 2 cups of oats.

Divide the mixture in half and spoon into 2 9x5-inch loaf pans.

Bake in the preheated oven until the meatloaf is no longer pink in the middle and the juice runs clear, about 1 hour.

Top with extra barbeque sauce if you’d like and enjoy!
