If you’ve ever wished your meatloaf could be less mushy, this Skillet Meatloaf forms a nice little crust from being cooked in a hot pan. The barbecue sauce added on top and then broiled forms a sweet, tomatoey glaze. It’s a different way to prepare an American favorite. Slice Easy Skillet Meatloaf up like pie and serve it with potatoes and veggies for dinner.


• 2 large eggs • 1/4 cup milk • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, fine dried • 1 tablespoon olive oil • 1 1/2 cups onion, diced • 1 teaspoon kosher salt • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper • 3 cloves garlic, minced • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef, preferably ground sirloin • 8 ounces ground pork • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and Worcestershire sauce.

Step 3

Add the breadcrumbs and stir until fully combined.

Step 4

Over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil in a cast-iron skillet. Once hot, add the onion, salt, and pepper until the onions are tender, about 15 minutes.

Step 5

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 6

Once slightly cooled, add the onion mixture to the egg mixture.

Step 7

Add in the beef and pork until combined. You may need to use your fingers. Transfer the meatloaf back to the skillet and press it evenly into the skillet.

Step 8

Bake the meatloaf for 25-30 minutes, or a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F.

Step 9

Once cooked through, remove the skillet from the oven and turn on the broiler. Brush the meatloaf with the barbeque sauce.

Step 10

Broil the meatloaf for about 3 minutes. Allow the meatloaf to cool slightly before serving.
