BBQ Stuffed Meatloaf

BBQ Stuffed Meatloaf

I love BBQ sauce and I LOVE meatloaf! What’s not to love about this BBQ Stuffed Meatloaf? It is like a giant cheese stuffed BBQ burger!

Many of you know that I didn’t like meatloaf night when I was a little girl. However, if my mom would have called it a gigantic hamburger loaf, I probably would have eaten it without question!



This BBQ Sauce that smothers this delicious stuffed meatloaf is so good, you are going to want to have extra in the fridge to use on everything! To make this delicious BBQ sauce for the meatloaf, you can use smoked salt or liquid smoke. If you are like me and love bbq flavors, I have GREAT news!

  • 1 pound ground beef 85% lean

LOST 100 Pounds together in 8 months! 

“These photos were taken nine months apart, on December 8, 2019 and September 6, 2020. In January we cut out high carb foods like pasta, rice, potatoes, flour, sugar, high fructose corn syrup etc.

We are big fans of Maria and Craig Emmerich and recommend their book, keto. Maria has several great cookbooks and a great website with hundreds of recipes posted free. 

I see an endocrinologist every six months for thyroid/ bloodwork and in June he was very happy with my numbers and results. He is pro keto and supports this lifestyle for us.

Steve’s lost 60 lbs and I’ve lost 40 lbs. We eat great. Neither of us are ever hungry.

The end. 🥰“ – Melissa
