This Easy Meatloaf is a favorite at my house. It's the recipe we always use when we want a meatloaf that's tender, super moist and utterly delicious!

  • 1 large onion finely chopped or grated
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs I used Panko
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 green bell pepper finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce I used Guy Fieri's Sweet and Smoky Kansas Style BBQ sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper or to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  • Grate the onion (if not using chopped) in a large bowl. Add the breadcrumbs and the milk and stir it together. Add the rest of the ingredients but only add about 3/4 cup of the barbecue sauce to the meat mixture. Mix the entire meat mixture really well using your hands or a spoon.
  • Add the meat mixture to the prepared loaf pan and shape it into a loaf. Brush with the remaining barbecue sauce over the top of the meatloaf.
  • Bake for 60 to 80 minutes or until done. Best way to tell when a meatloaf is done is to use an instant-read thermometer. Insert the thermometer into the meatloaf and when it reaches 160 degrees F, it's done.
  • Let it sit for 10 minutes before slicing into it.



  1. Note: Video is missing Worcestershire sauce, please add that to the recipe.
  2. To get that gravy that you can see in the video that I'm drizzling over the meatloaf, all I did was mix the pan juices with some more BBQ sauce and it's to die for!
  3. Tip: Place the loaf pan on a baking sheet as you bake the meatloaf so as not to get your oven dirty.
  4. Serve this over creamy mashed potatoes.
  5. Nutrition: Nutritional information assumes 8 servings for the meatloaf. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
