It's very basic but, as a single dad at times, it works well and my kids love it.
1 lbs 80/20 ground beef
1 sleeve Saltine Crackers (this is where I get my salt from)
2 eggs (I prefer a sturdier meatloaf, hence why I use an extra egg)
1 cup Salsa (I use medium hot as you still get some spice but it's diluted enough that the kids are ok. This also saves you from having to chop veggies)
BBQ Sauce (I use Sweet Baby Rays Hickory)
Optional: 2 tbs of finely minced garlic
Latex gloves (I noticed that while using bare hands, they'd get covered in fat and it was hard to clean off. Using gloves for this single application is more sanitary and easier on the hands)
Using a food processor, grind crackers finely. Or double bag crackers in 1 gallon ziplocks and mash with your hand or rubber mallet until they're finely mashed. (Double bagging is important as the crackers will punch holes through a single bag)
Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl (with gloves) and mix until consistent.
Put mixture into loaf pan.
Place pan into oven preheated to 350 F for 30 min.
After 30 min pull pan and cover loaf with BBQ sauce. (Spreading evenly with brush.)
Bake for another 15~20 min.
With meat thermometer check temp for 160~165 F.
Optional: Put oven on high Broil for 1~2 min to thicken/caramelize BBQ sauce.
Let rest for 20~30 min, cut and enjoy.
BTW this is all at sea level for our friends at higher elevations you may need more time.
