Please ignore that the picture MAY NOT be yummy looking, instead trust me when I say this it great meatloaf. My boys took one look and turned up their
snobby sweet noses. After taking the mandatory one bite, they announced, "well, that wasn't so bad after all." I hope you feel the same way.
1 lb. ground sirloin
1 egg beaten or 3 TBSP apple sauce
1/3 c. bread crumbs
½ cup unsweetened milk alternative of choice
2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. Real Salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
Dash of pepper
1/3 cup BBQ sauce (divided)**
1 TBSP dark brown sugar (or to taste)
Pinch of allspice
Mix beef, bread crumbs, egg, milk, spices, and ½ of BBQ sauce together. Arrange in a greased 9” x 5” stone loaf pan. Use the rest of the BBQ sauce to cover top of meatloaf. Dust with breadcrumbs for a crunchy top. Optional: dust top with parmesan cheese. Cover with parchment and bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
*** you can cook this in a loaf pan inside your crockpot using a waterbath.
