Buttermilk Meat Loaf Recipe

Publisher Photo
Barbecue sauce is a Southwestern staple, so I use it in meat loaf instead of ketchup. The buttermilk and garlic also lend a tangy flavor. Whenever I serve this, it gets rave reviews, even from those who don’t ordinarily care for meat loaf.

MY REVIEW

DELICIOUS!! I USED QUICK COOKING OATMEAL INSTEAD OF BREAD CRUMBS AND MY HUSBAND SAID THIS WAS THE BEST MEATLOAF YET! SERVED WITH SOME BROWN GRAVY WITH MUSHROOMS AND ONIONS...YUMMY!

We all loved it. Adjusting the recipe slightly I added a 1/4 pound of ground pork and used Pampered Chef Cherry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce which added zing.

Very Moist and Excellent Flavor!! Have made this several times for family gatherings and always get wonderful compliments. Next time I am going to make it into meatballs for an appetizer tray at a potluck dinner.

Very Moist! Have made this several times. DH, who is not a meatloaf fan, asks for this often. He likes the BBQ. The only thing I change is I use fresh garlic in place of garlic salt. Very good.

Very nice flavor to this recipe. It made a nice change from the onion version I regularly use. Thumbs up from the whole family!
