"This meatloaf is very moist and flavorful, and super easy and quick to make."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was very different and very good - once some critical changes in measurements were made, at least to please Hubs and me. After decades of meatloaf making :) you grow to recognize how much wet and how much dry ingredients you'll need. The half cup of bread crumbs was just fine (up to 2/3 cup would have been okay), but two eggs and a half cup of barbecue sauce (or milk, or ketchup, or whatever wet ingredient you choose to use) is an amount better suited for two pounds of meat, not one! Also, Worcestershire sauce has a distinct flavor and shouldn't be overdone - half the amount was just right for our tastes - 1-1/2 tsp. I skipped the optional chili powder because I was so enthusiastic about the flavors of BBQ sauce, oregano and Dijon - not to mention the bacon! - and I felt the chili powder would be an unneccessary distraction rather than a positive contribution. I used a meatloaf mix (beef, veal, pork) and added some chopped celery along with the onion - and of course I seasoned this well with salt and pepper. The bottom line is that this was darned good, an interesting change from the usual meatloaf.
This had a good flavor, but it was way too wet to form into a log. I suggest cutting the egg to one and the bbq sauce to 1/4 cup, or add it little by little. I used 1/2 cup bread crumbs as the recipe said, so maybe more bread would help also. I also cooked the back a little longer before I used it. Not sure if I'll make this again.
Good recipe with a few changes. I have a big family so I used 2 1/2 pounds of meat, used ketchup and BBQ sauce in the meatloaf and also about a tablespoon of hot sauce and omitted the chili powder. I added green pepper to the onion/garlic saute. After wrapping with the bacon I made a topping mixture of BBQ sauce, ketchup, honey and Brown sugar which I rubbed over the top before baking. Turned out awesome. I would have given this 5 stars but you needed some tweeks to make it a really great meatloaf.
You don't need to form log if you use loaf pan. The wetness described will cook away by adding 10-15 minutes and be really moist. Dryness is biggest complaint of meatloaf. I add cheddar cheese down middle. the best meatloaf I ever ate was cooked in electric skillet if you have one.

Very tasty and moist! I followed the other reviewers and cut down to 1 egg. I also mixed a little ketchup, BBQ sauce and brown sugar together and used it as glaze for the top. My boyfriend couldn't get enough of it! Would definitely make this again.
The flavor was good, but I would use 1.5-2 lbs of ground beef, leaving all other ingredients the same.
I made this today instead of turkey for a holiday dinner. It tasted great, and was extremely moist. I took other reviewers comments into consideration and tweaked the ingredients a bit.
I wanted to make more than one loaf, so doubled the meat and used about 2lbs of lean ground beef, 1 cup of bread crumbs, a green bell pepper suated in with my onion, 1/2 cup BBQ sauce, and only one egg. I thought it would still be too wet, but it worked out fine.
My glaze was BBQ sauce, ketchup, and a lil bit of brown sugar. I thought by making 2lbs we'd have a decent amount of leftovers, but everyone enjoyed it so much and had seconds!
I didnt use a loaf pan. Instead I shaped my loafs in a plastic wrapped loaf pan, turned it out on to a wire a sheet pan, and baked it on an aluminim lined baking sheet, so the fat dripped away, and it was easier to baste.
Thanks for the recipe. It was easy to make, and just needed a few tiny tweaks. Most moist meatloaf I've ever had! :)
