This stuffed beefy meat loaf concoction comes from Taste of Home Cooking for 2, but all I can think about when I read the words meat loaf and stuffed is this guy.
Why specifically do I think of Meat Loaf as Bob and not Eddie from Rocky Horror? There’s even that time he played a mobster in A Hole in One with Michelle Williams. Why does that not come readily to mind?
I don’t know dear readers. I just know that my mind works in mysterious ways.
What you’ll need.
- 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, divided
- 1/4 cup of hot water
- 1 tablespoon of butter, melted.
- 1 cup of stuffing
- 2/3 a pound of lean ground beef
The first step in making this stuffed meat loaf is to combine 1/4 of the barbecue sauce with the water and butter in a small bowl. When that mixture has been mixed well, add the stuffing.
Next, shove the mixture aside to form your meat patties. You will make four patties out of the 2/3 a pound of beef. Try to make them as even as possible because you are basically going to make a sandwich with the stuffing mixture as the inside. Do this by dividing the stuffing mixture into half and scooping each half on one patty. Then, place a plain patty on top of the one with stuffing and seal the edges so that the stuffing remains intact.
In case you got confused, there should only be two servings or two stuffed patties. If you’re still confused, don’t fret. I have pictures.
The next step will be to bake the patties in the oven by placing them on a baking pan, naturally. Before you put them in the oven, do pour the remaining barbecue sauce on top. Once that’s done, bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
These turned out real well! I love it when a recipe is not only delicious, but easy to make.
The taste is what you’d expect. It’s meatloaf as a burger. I ate mine without a bun or extra toppings, but I could see some trendy burger food truck making this into a thing.
Feel free to save $12 and do it yourself, though. That’s my recommendation anyway.
