BBQ Meatloaf

So hungry people + a late dinner time + comfort food = some really ugly pictures, so there are none for this post. Sorry! But this was so delicious and easy to prepare I just had to share it with you.

I saw this on my friend Nicole's blog while I was making my weekly meal plan and immediately added it to the list. I have been making my same version of turkey meatloaf for awhile now and was in the mood to try something new. This was great - a tasty make-your-own BBQ sauce really adds a lot to the old favorite!

BBQ Meatloaf
slightly adapted from Ingredients for a Wonderful Life
Makes 4-6 servings

1.25-1.5 pounds ground beef or turkey
1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 medium onion, finely chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat an 11x7 baking dish with cooking spray.

Mix together the beef or turkey, bread crumbs, onion, egg, salt, pepper, and 1/2 c. of the tomato sauce. Form mixture into a loaf and place into prepared baking dish.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the rest of the tomato sauce, vinegar, sugar, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour the sauce over the meatloaf.

Bake for 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes or so with the pan juices.
