I’ve been trying to make a habit of incorporating more plant-based foods into my diet as I plan for an even healthier 2021. So I partnered with Impossible Foods to give their plant-based meat a try, and I have to say, I am shocked at how undetectable the difference is from traditional ground cow meat.

I used it to make my BBQ Meatloaf recipe and y'all, I light-weight think this version with Impossible™ Burger is better - NO LIE. It came out even more moist than the original, plus it still has that hearty meat flavor and texture I love in a meatloaf. I honestly don’t think you’d be able to even tell the difference if you tried it.

    Ingredients used

    • 24 Ounces Impossible™ Burger
    • 3/4 Cup panko bread crumbs
    • 3/10 Cups milk
    • 2 1/2 Teaspoons kosher salt

  3. Prepare the Meatloaf for Baking

    Spray a large sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray. Add the meatloaf mixture to foil and form into a football shape. Lift the meatloaf by the foil and drop into a loaf pan. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

  4. Make your BBQ Glaze

    Ingredients used

    • 1 1/2 Cups ketchup
    • 2 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

    While meatloaf is baking, in a medium pot over medium-high heat add all the BBQ glaze ingredients and stir frequently. Bring the ingredients to a boil then reduce heat to medium. After 10 minutes of baking, carefully scoop and pour one cup of the glaze over the top of the meatloaf. Make sure it is poured evenly over the entire loaf. Put meatloaf back in the oven for 15 more minutes.
