I’ve recently added a new dish to my family’s favorites, Sweet & Spicy Meatloaf. This recipe actually comes from my sister, Angela. She made this meatloaf for a family gathering and everyone went nuts over it. I’ve never had a more flavorful meatloaf!
1 lb. ground beef I recommend 90% lean
1/2 sleeve saltine crackers (crushed)
1/4 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 clove garlic (diced)
1 jalapeno (diced with jalapeno seeds) – leave seeds out if you don’t want the extra spice
1/3 cup shredded cheese (I use Cheddar Jack)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbs. honey
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix meatloaf ingredients together in a medium bowl until well combined. Grease a meatloaf pan and spread meatloaf mixture evenly in pan.
Combine topping ingredients together in a small bowl and pour over meatloaf mixture.
Cover meatloaf with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Uncover meatloaf and bake for another 30-45 minutes.
