Recipe Notes

  • Use your favorite barbecue sauce for this easy ground beef recipe. It can be on the sweet side (honey), smoky side (hickory or mesquite) or spicy side.
  • Freshly grated cheese melts better than pre-shredded cheese, so grate it fresh if you can.
  • You could even use half ground pork and half ground beef.

Here's how you make it:

  1. Combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, eggs, mustard, salt, pepper (to taste) and a dash or two of Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Put the mixture onto a piece of wax paper or foil and pat into a square shape.
  2. Combine the cheese and parsley. Sprinkle it over the meat. Roll up the meat to form a log shape. Pat gently to form a meatloaf and enclose the ends.
  3. Place the meatloaf in a lightly oiled baking pan or loaf pan. Pour the barbecue sauce over the top.
  4. Bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for about 1 hour, or until meat is cooked through. If it begins to get too brown during cooking, cover with foil. Allow to sit about 10 minutes before cutting.
