Applesauce Meatloaf

Submitted by: TONY3779

Introduction

This is a twist on meatloaf I stumbled across. I find it best to mix it all in the bowl the night before so that it all seasons and blends together. Meatloaf was always better the day after... but I found since letting it sit first that it was just as good out of the oven. This is a twist on meatloaf I stumbled across.

Ingredients

    1 pound Lean Ground Beef (or Turkey if you choose)
    1 cup Brown Rice
    1 cup unsweetened Applesauce
    1 large egg
    6 tbsp of A1 Sauce (I like the bold and spicy, but any BBQ will do)
    Garlic, Onion, and other spices seasoned to taste... I place all the meat, rice, and egg in 1 bowl, then the rest in another so I can season the applesauce to taste safely.

Directions

Mix the sauce in 1 bowl, seasoned to taste, then pour over the ground beef, rice, and egg.

Blend until all evenly mixed, then place in a baking pan (I find a loaf pan works best, but in a pinch I have used a 9 x 9 dish as well.

Bake it in the oven uncovered:

I broil it the first 15 minutes to sear the meat, then reduce the heat to 350 and bake another 30 minutes, or until internal temp reaches 160-165 on the meat thermometer.

I also use a baster to drain off the fat out of the pan every 15 minutes or so.

Let it cool about 5 minutes to firm up, and then enjoy.
