This started out as an experiment for an alternative to beef, but it turned out to be the best meatloaf ever.

  • Combine the turkey, chicken, sausage, and egg in a large bowl. Stir in the saltine crackers, 1/2 cup barbeque sauce, 1 tablespoon of mustard, liquid smoke, parsley, dried onion, onion powder, garlic salt, and seasoned salt; mix well. Press into the prepared pan.

  • Bake meatloaf in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Combine the brown sugar with the remaining 2 tablespoons of barbeque sauce, and 1 tablespoon of mustard to make a glaze. Remove meatloaf from oven; brush with glaze. Return the meatloaf to the oven, and bake until no longer pink in the center, about 25 additional minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).

Used Ritz instead of saltines and substituted the chicken for an extra half pound of turkey. This was so good that I almost exploded. In a really good way. Read More

I followed the recipe exact only using garlic powder and sea salt instead of garlic salt and seasoning salt. This baked up kind of mushy and didn't stay together well. My oldest and I liked this okay my husband and youngest did not. I don't think I'll make this again but I appreciate the chance to try this one. Read More

I made this for the first time tonight for dinner. My husband will eat anything I cook but tonight before I even had taken a bite of the meatloaf he said "this is the best meatloaf I have ever eaten!" After I got a bite I had to agree! It was great and I will use this recipe from now on! Thank you so much! Read More

Absolutely the best meatloaf I've EVER had! The bbq sauce and the sausage go together so well! The only thing I didn't add was the liquid smoke...I do not like the flavor of that stuff. I may have added a few more cracker crumbs than it called for...but the texture was just perfect. A will make again!!!! Read More
