Leah’s Brothers GOLD Heavenly Barbecue Meat Loaf Recipe

Fall is officially upon us (despite the 98 degree temps here in North Texas today)! Meatloaf is spectacular whenever and wherever, but I find that it's extra tasty when their is a chill in the air. Or in my neck of the woods, when the air conditioner quits running for hours at a time. Grab a jar of Brothers GOLD this weekend and cook to your heart's content! You're family (and your stomach) will thank you for it. I guarantee it. Enjoy!

This is the meat loaf your grandmother will WISH she had created, but will be glad that somebody did! We have been told by many that they will NEVER eat meat loaf any other way. In fact, it will make you think you’ve died and gone to meat loaf heaven! Make it and surprise your loved ones. It’s sure to be a hit. Makes 2 loaves and serves 6-8 appetites. For a smaller 4 person serving simply cut all ingredients in half. or make the whole dang recipe and freeze the other loaf. You’ll be glad you did. Preheat oven at 350 degrees.

4 lbs. lean ground turkey, note: “extra lean” makes a drier meat loaf
12-14 saltine crackers, crushed (The square single cracker portion)
1/2 cup of Brothers GOLD into loaf mixture and set aside 1/2 cup to pour on top of loaves after they have baked for 45 minutes. See below.
2 eggs beaten
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of salt, optional, the crackers and BBQ sauce will salt

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Prepare a glass 9”x 12” baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Divide loaf mixture into two equal sized loaves and place both loaves into baking dish side-by-side. Place dish in oven on middle shelf and bake for 45 minutes. Remove baking pan from oven and slowly pour 3/4 cup of Brothers GOLD evenly over both loaves. Place baking dish back into the still heated oven for 15 minutes. Remove dish from oven and serve. Each loaf yields 4 sliced servings.
