Honey Barbecue Meatloaf

1 lb. 90% lean ground beef
1 slice white bread, ground to crumbs in food processor -or- 2/3 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1/2 cup smoky barbecue sauce, divided
2 tablespoons Michele Honey Crème Syrup, divided
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Toss one slice of soft white bread in your food processor and grind it into crumbs. In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together the ground beef, fresh bread crumbs, 1 tablespoon of the Worcestershire sauce, the spicy brown mustard, 1/4 cup of the barbecue sauce, 1 tablespoon honey crème syrup, salt, and black pepper. Shape the mixture into a long, thick log and place in an oiled baking dish. Be careful not to pack the meat too tightly or you’ll end up with a very dense, tough loaf. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, and 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce. Spread half of this mixture evenly all over the meatloaf. Reserve the other half for serving. Bake for 45 minutes. Slice and drizzle with reserved honey barbecue sauce.
