Barbeque Meatloaf

I have many recipes that I love, but this meatloaf that Linsey shared with me a few years ago is really one of my go to dishes. I usually have all of the ingredients on hand, I can throw it together in no time, and everyone loves it! Barbeque meatloaf printable version.

I use very lean ground beef for this recipe – usually 93/7 – so that there is not too much grease in the dish after cooking.

To the meat, add 1 cup crushed saltine crackers.

Chop one medium onion, and add it to the mixture. I used a large one for this loaf. We love onion, and Vidalias are in season!

Last, add 1/2 cup tomato sauce.
