Ohhhh, this Cheesy Brown Sugar Steakhouse Meatloaf with Garlic, Mustard & Horseradish was one of the BEST meatloaves I’ve ever made! Along with a melty layer of provolone cheese on top, this gorgeous hunk also gets a final crowning of deep golden-browned, caramelized onions, too!! So how good does THAT sound?!! Well, I can tell you that it tasted even BETTER than it sounds! Though my go-to one is FAR from dry, the hubs and I couldn’t get over how juicy this one was!! A mere 1/4 of a cup of a secret, simple ingredient made all the difference! Truly all-around fantastic! You’re in for one kick ass meatloaf, that’s for sure. One of the very best I’ve ever tasted!
Our favorite meatloaf, is my stand-by Farmhouse Meatloaf, and is also a favorite of some of my friends and relatives, too. So I’m always a bit reluctant to veer away from something that is loved and expected. But I admit, I get bored with the same-old-same-old easily. Though I personally love my traditional one too, I do love to cut loose and play with my food every chance I get! So when staring down a package of extra-lean hamburger…I decided it was time to have a little fun and create a new meatloaf!
The pressure was ON, because the hubs was already excited over being told that “meatloaf” was being made for supper, and he loves my traditional one. Aaaaand, I didn’t exactly tell him what kind of meatloaf I was making. So, I sure didn’t want to disappoint and let him down. Not to mention, ground beef has become ridiculously expensive, so I also didn’t want to spend time making it and have it turn out to be a costly waste, either!
Luckily, it turned out amazing. And I mean ah-MAY-zing!! BAZINGA!!! Perfect for a Sunday dinner!! And oooohhh, the leftovers!!! BEST leftover meatloaf sandwiches. EVER. Not kidding!
Sometimes I think my hubby requests that I make a meatloaf
just for the sandwiches the next day!!
I don’t even know which way I liked it better. The first night, hot, as part of a full dinner. Or the next day, room temp, between two soft slices of good ol’ white sandwich bread! And even the next day, not even heated, this meatloaf was STILL juicy!! What a sandwich!!!
So if you’re looking for a killer good meatloaf that the entire family will love…you probably better make TWO of these.
One for dinner, and the second one for the leftover sandwiches!
So what’s the secret ingredient? Just a little bit of mayonnaise! 😉
Hope you enjoy!!
