Best Boston Market Meatloaf Copycat

Our family loves a meatloaf dinner from time to time, and this meatloaf offers a slightly sweet and tangy version of the classic favorite (plus, again, we live nowhere near any such place as Boston Market...there is no way to get a 'fix' other than to make it ourselves).

Another reason I love this meatloaf is that it requires ingredients that are almost always on hand in our home.

I always have onions, ketchup, barbecue sauce, and breadcrumbs (and usually some form of ground beef in the freezer).

We are meatloaf fanatics here at Bake It With Love! Check out my other meatloaf recipes because we have so many incredible options!

🥘 Boston Market Meatloaf Ingredients

With everything already in the pantry, it's a great choice for those nights when dinner hasn't been planned. Use your favorite brand of BBQ sauce to make the meatloaf sauce taste just how you like it!

  • Ketchup - ½ cup.
  • Barbecue Sauce - ½ cup.
  • Ground Sirloin - 1 ½ pounds.
  • Tomato Puree - ½cup.
  • Breadcrumbs - ½cup, toasted.
  • Yellow Onion - ¼ cup, finely chopped
  • Seasoning - ¾ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoononion powder, ¼ teaspoon pepper, ¼ teaspoon garlic powder.

*Be sure to see the recipe card below for ingredients, amounts & instructions!*

🔪 How To Make Boston Market Meatloaf

This meatloaf is the perfect family dinner for busy weeknights because it is so easy to make! All you need is a mixing bowl, a loaf pan, and a square of aluminum foil!

  1. Prep. Preheat your oven to 375°F(190°C)and combine ½ cup of ketchup and ½ cup of barbecue sauce in a small bowl. Set it aside for later.
  2. Combine ingredients. In a large bowl, combine 1 ½ pounds of ground sirloin, ½ cup of tomato puree, ½ cup of toasted breadcrumbs, ¼ cup of finely chopped yellow onion, ¾ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon onion powder, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and ¼ teaspoon of garlic powder. Use your hands to thoroughly combine the ingredients then stop. Be careful not to overwork the meat.
  3. Form and bake. Transfer the meatloaf mixture to a loaf pan. Shape it by making it flat and even, then pressing your fingers down all the way along the sides (this forms a well for any grease). Cover your meatloaf with foil and bake it at 375°F(190°C) for 30 minutes.
  4. Add sauce. Remove the foil and drain off any excess fat, if necessary. Then, drizzle the combined topping sauce (ketchup and barbecue mixture) down the center of the meatloaf. Do not spread.
  5. Finish and serve. Return the meatloaf to the oven and bake, uncovered, for an additional 15-20 minutes (or until the center is no longer pink). Remove from the oven(drain fat again, if necessary)and serve immediately.

💭 Tips & Notes

  • Mixing: Avoid overmixing the meatloaf to prevent it from becoming tough. Mix just until all ingredients are combined.
  • Storing Leftovers: Store any leftover meatloaf in a shallow, airtight container in the refrigerator. Consume within 4 days for best quality.
  • Freezing Instructions: To freeze the cooked meatloaf, let it cool first. Then, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, place it in a heavy-duty freezer bag, and freeze for up to 6 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating.
  • Reheating: To reheat, put the meatloaf in a baking dish, cover with foil, and bake at 250°F (120°C) for 25-30 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

❓What Kind Of Meat Is In Boston Market Meatloaf?

Boston Market uses ground beef in their meatloaf. In this case, I opted for 80/20 ground sirloin.

❓Can Meatloaf Be Frozen?

Meatloaf freezes incredibly well! Wrap it in plastic wrap to prevent freezer burn, then place it in a heavy-duty freezer bag. Pop it in the freezer and enjoy within 6 months!

❓ Can Meatloaf Be Made Without Eggs?

Yes! This meatloaf recipe is the perfect example because it is made without any eggs!
