  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (93% lean)
  • 3/4 cup Hunt's® Hickory & Brown Sugar Barbecue Sauce, divided

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix beef, 1/4 cup barbecue sauce and bacon in medium bowl.

Cook's Tips

Heat and serve a piece of leftover meatloaf on a toasted sesame seed bun for a delicous gourmet burger! For a different cheesy twist, try Cheddar or Pepper Jack cheese in place of the provolone.

Really good. I made it differently. 2 lbs ground beef with a package of meatloaf seasoning, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup milk and 1/4 (I think) of breadcrumbs. Also used Swiss instead of provolone. It cooked for about 1.5 hours sooo worth it!

I didnt like how the hamburger crumbled and it did have alot of BBQ sauce. It did taste good. I will make it again for me and my family.

Thanks for the idea. Definitely made it my own way but the same base. Super excited to eat it.

During an extended stay with my son and daughter in law, they called from work one day and asked if I would take out the frozen ground beef, and make something for dinner. As it turned out, it was only a pound . Not much, for 3 adults and a child, so I looked for a "meatloaf type" recipe, and found this The addition of cooked bacargoon, which I baked in the pre -heating oven, really bumped up the protein, and just to keep things soupy, I added a quarter cup of plain bread crumbs and an egg. I used the little pot pie aluminium ;ans., pouring off the grease 1/2 way through. After 15 mins. I topped them off with mashed potatoes, and popped them back in the oven for 10 mins. It was easy, pretty, and really tasty. So many flavors. I got such rave reviews Try it. Its exceptional!

I liked the dinner. I did add a little diced onions and red bell peppers and one egg. I also went a little less than 1/2 cup BBQ sauce at the end. But I thought it was a very nice change from plain meat loaf. The bacon did the trick.

I loved this rendition on meatloaf! I was looking for a spin on the traditional recipe, because I didn't have any eggs lol. This was AMAZING! I made some for my family the my friends next door and hands down everyone loved it!!!! The cheesy bbq bacon flavor was a hit!
