Honey Barbecue Meatloaf

- 3/4 cup smoky barbecue sauce (of your choice), divided
- 2 tablespoons honey, divided
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Toss one slice of soft white bread in your food processor and grind it into crumbs. (Or use regular breadcrumbs or panko.)
- In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together one pound of lean ground beef, fresh bread crumbs, 1/2 cup of your favorite smoky barbecue sauce, 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard (or dijon), 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon ground black pepper.
- Shape the mixture into a long, thick log and place in an oiled baking dish. Be careful not to pack the meat too tightly or you’ll end up with a very dense, tough loaf.

- Bake for 45 minutes.
