Honey BBQ Meatloaf is a tender and flavorful meatloaf made with ground beef and ground pork with a sweet honey barbecue glaze on top. For the same great flavors in homemade meatballs, try my Honey BBQ Meatballs recipe.
The combination of ground beef and ground pork really help this meatloaf be the juiciest and tasty meatloaf you can make. It is delicious on its own, but with the added homemade honey bbq sauce, it makes this comfort food even better!
2 pounds ground beef
1 pound ground pork
2 large eggs, beaten
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ cup milk
½ cup fine dry breadcrumbs
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup onion, finely chopped
1 cup barbecue sauce
⅓ cup honey
⅓ cup grape jelly
Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Spray a large loaf pan (6½ x 10-inch) with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, ground pork, beaten eggs, parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix together until just combined.
In a medium bowl, combine the milk, breadcrumbs, garlic, and onion.
Add milk mixture to the meat mixture being careful not to overwork ingredients.
Add the meat mixture to the prepared loaf pan, pressing the meat in tightly.
In a separate bowl, combine barbecue sauce, honey, and grape jelly. Mix well.
Spread half of the bbq mixture over the top of the meatloaf.
Bake for 40 minutes.
Spread the rest of the sauce over the meatloaf.
Bake for 20 more minutes. The meatloaf is done when its internal temperature is 160°F.
Allow the dish cool for about 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
