Honey BBQ Meatloaf w/ Mashed Potatoes and Baked Beans:

95B11155-FD8C-4F0E-9D4C-ACCD6D98B98E

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 2.5/5

The meatloaf did not stay together. The BBQ sauce we chose was pretty sweet on it’s own so we didn’t add any honey. It tasted good but the beef was more chewy and tough not soft and moist like meatloaf should be. We made canned baked beans and the dairy-free mashed potatoes from Brooklyn Farm Girl that I reviewed in Recipe Reviews (#2). I don’t think we’ll ever switch mashed potatoes recipes.

Ingredients needed:

1 lb 90% lean ground beef
½ c plain panko bread crumbs
1 T plus 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
1 T dijon mustard
4 T smoky barbecue sauce
1 T honey

    1. Hahaha, what is the classic Mexican dish called that it looks like? I wish it was that because this stew was not flavorful at all…and no, we bought the cornbread from Smith’s bakery section haha.

      1. It’s called “caldo de res” (literally beef soup). Depending on preference, it can either be clear broth or red broth (made with chiles for a spicy taste). They also like to add lots of veggies like carrots, cabbage, corn on the cob, potatoes, etc. it’s delicious but I honestly prefer caldo de pollo (chicken).
        Awh i think I tried to make it once from scratch but it didn’t have the cornbread flavor, perhaps I was missing a key ingredient.

        1. Oooh. That sounds delicious! It’s dairy-free, yeah? I may have to find a recipe on Pinterest for next week! 😀
          Baking is hard! We were gonna buy the Jiffy box mix but we found the already baked ones in the bakery section LOL.
