Classic Meatloaf
Serves: Serves 6
BBQ Sauce
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F
  2. In a small mixing bowl, add all the ingredients listed under “BBQ sauce” and stir well with a spoon until evenly combined.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients for the meatloaf, including half of the BBQ sauce that you just made and knead well with your hands until all the ingredients are well combined.
  4. Transfer the meat mixture to a loaf pan. Press it down and shape the top so it looks nice and round.
  5. Spread the rest of the BBQ sauce evenly all over the top and then place your meatloaf in the oven. Make sure to place a broiler pan or large piece of aluminum foil directly underneath to collect the drippings that will assuredly leak out of the pan.
  6. Bake for a total of 15 minutes at 375F then lower the temperature to 350F. Continue baking for 30 minutes, then cover loosely with aluminum foil and bake for another 30 minutes.
  7. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and let it rest for at least 20 minutes before serving.
  8. Garnish with fresh parsley and extra-virgin olive oil, if desired.
