Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Meatloaf Recipe by Ash's In The Kitchen

This is by far my favorite recipe for meatloaf. I love meatloaf with ketchup, but what about FRESH homemade BBQ Sauce? One word. Amazing!

Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Meatloaf

  • 3 lbs lean Ground Beef or Turkey
  • 2 large Eggs; whisked
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Breadcrumbs, crushed Saltines or Ritz Crackers
  • 1/2 cup White Onion; chopped
  • 1/4 cup Carrot; chopped
  • 1/2 cup Bell Pepper; minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 3 Tablespoons Pickled Jalapeno Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Sauce
  • 2 Garlic Cloves; finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Herbs
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 4 cups Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Sauce
  1. In small bowl, combine breadcrumbs or crushed crackers and milk. Rest for 5 minutes to form a paste.
  2. In large bowl, combine everything but the 4 cups of BBQ sauce and hand mix until just incorporated. Be sure not over-mix or the meat will become tough and dry.
  3. Place 2 slices of bread in the bottom of a loaf pan and press meat mixture over top; cover with foil. NOTE: If you place it in the fridge for an hour or overnight it allows the flavors to marry and amplifies the flavors.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  5. Spread half of BBQ sauce over the meat and cover with foil. Bake for 45 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to check its internal temperature; it should be around 125°F to 130°F. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and drain the excess fat. Top with the remaining BBQ sauce and cook an until internal temperature reaches 135°F; about 10 minutes.
  6. Serve with Mashed Potatoes, gravy, and your preferred greens!
  7. Enjoy!
