Meatloaf with BBQ glaze is a winner. This recipe has been floating around our family for so long and it’s great hot or cold. What’s not to like.
Meatloaf is just one of those favourites that a lot of families have a favourite recipe for. This recipe has certainly been made many, many times in our family. It’s moist and very flavoursome. Perfect for serving with creamy mashed potatoes, taking on a picnic or piling onto a sandwich.
The meat needs to have fat. Period. You will not get a moist, flavoursome meatloaf without it. This is one recipe that will not thank you for using lean beef. Same goes for the sausage mince. We used sausages that we took the meat out of the skins, and again, you need fat.
The glaze is a little spicy, a lot barbecuey, with a really interesting back note from the instant coffee. If you really like your sauce, simply double the sauce recipe. Nothing wrong with a little extra sauce on your mashed potatoes.
Get hands on
The only way to really incorporate the flavours is to get your hands into the bowl and mince it all together.
You’ll need to helicopter over your meatloaf, and continually baste it to achieve the lovely deep mahogany saucy crust.
