Hey, my friends! Hope you are all doing well! It has been getting cold here in Chicago and with winter fast approaching, what is better than some comfort food recipes. One that my husband loves is a classic meatloaf. You really can’t go wrong with a nice tender slice of flavorful cooked beef! It pairs so well with my creamy mashed potatoes or even my cauliflower mash for a healthier option. I like to make this when I have ground beef and don’t want to make kofta!
It only takes a few components to make a mouth-watering classic meatloaf that everyone will enjoy. All you need is some good quality beef, onions, a few sauces, and delicious seasonings.
I used Veggie Season’s Roasted Garlic butter seasoning in this meatloaf for that buttery and garlic taste. It definitely paired well with this dish. It is a much lower calorie option and healthier for me to jazz up my dishes with these seasoning blends than to actually add the cheese, butter, and ranch. They really are a fantastic substitute for the real deal especially since they are made with real ingredients. Therefore, better for you and much better quality and flavor.
I really have been enjoying Veggie Season’s Blends because not only are they packed with flavor but they are also Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, and vegetarian.

- 2 lbs Ground Beef (90/10)
- 1 cup Seasoned Bread Crumbs
- 1/2 cup Milk
- 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 3 tbsp Roasted Garlic Butter Seasoning from Veggie Season's
- 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Small Onion Finely diced
- 3 tbsp Hot sauce
- 2 tbsp Dried Italian seasoning
- 1/3 cup BBQ sauce of choice
- In a bowl, mix together all the ingredients very well other than the BBQ sauce. Make sure everything is well incorporated and binded.
- Preheat oven to 360 F.
- On a baking pan, mold the meat into a shape of a meatloaf then slather the BBQ sauce all over the top and edges. You can also bake this in a loaf pan but I prefer it on a pan as it gets a nicer color.
- Bake for 50 minutes. The meat should be cooked and tender. Do not take out of loaf pan if you decide to use until it cools. Also, wait to cut the meatloaf until it cools down or else there is a risk of it breaking as it is so moist.
- Enjoy with rice, salad, or some creamy mashed potatoes!
