Mary Beth Albright’s Sweet and Spicy Meatloaf

We have had this recipe on many occasions and really enjoyed it. The recipe is from Mary Beth’s Blog.


For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup of ketchup
  • 1 cup of BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Rae’s)
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar

For the Meatloaf:

  • 1/3 cup of panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup of whole-fat buttermilk
  • 1 tbsp olive oil ( I used canola oil)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup of small diced onions
  • 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup of chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp of tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 lbs. of ground beef (lean or extra lean)
  • 1/2 lb of ground lean pork
  • 1 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of ground pepper


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F
  2. Combine the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan and place over low heat.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft and translucent ( try not to brown). Add parsley, basil and tomato past and cook for about a minute. Set aside to cool.
  4. In a small bowl combine panko and buttermilk ( I sometimes add some hot horseradish to this mixture 1 tbsp) and set aside for 5 minutes.
  5. In a large bowl combine, place beef, pork, cheese, salt and pepper, the onion mixture and the panko mixture. Mix with your hands until just combined.
  6. On a rimmed baking pan ( I use a disposable tinfoil pan 13x10x2 1/2), form the mixture into loaf shape sitting in the center of the pan, with all four sides exposed.
  7. Brush sides and top with some glaze and bake for 50 minutes. Brush on more glaze every 10 minutes or so. Retain excess glaze as a sauce.
  8. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve.
