Meatloaf is my favorite comfort food in the world and I have been stuck making the Cracker Barrel Copycat Meatloaf for a while, so when I saw this recipe for Honey Mustard Meatloaf, I knew it was time for a change. I couldn’t wait to try it with the freshly ground brisket I got from our local meat market yesterday. The ingredients are super simple and basic things most of you already have.
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 small finely diced onion
Small Stalk of Celery (minced)
1 Small Carrot (minced)
1/2 cup finely diced bell pepper – optional
1/2 cup finely chopped breadcrumbs
1/2 cup French’s Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce (divided into 2 portions: 1/4 and 1/4 cups)
1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
12 to 14 slices of thinly sliced bacon
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Mix above ingredients well Preheat oven 350 degrees F In a large bowl mix the eggs, breadcrumbs, onion, bell pepper, carrot, celery, 1/4 cup French’s Honey Mustard Sauce, salt, and black pepper in a mixing bowl and fold ingredients together making a loaf shape.
Place meatloaf on foil or parchment paper-lined baking sheet/pan. Form into a loaf., then weave 6 slices of bacon across the top and 6 slices underneath your glorious French’s Honey Mustard Meatloaf and then bake your loaf at 375 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes (glazing with your remaining honey mustard (1/4 cup every 20 minutes or so) If your bacon is cooking too quickly cover it with a bit of foil.
Remove from oven and spread and brush on more of the Honey Mustard the topping. Bake for an additional 30-40 minutes or until the center is 160 degrees F. Remove from oven and let stand for 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy.
This Honey Mustard Meatloaf Recipe lived up to my expectations, my family loved it and I will definitely be making it again.
