Sweet and Spicy Meatloaf

This is a recipe that I came up with when my oldest child was only five, (she’s 25 now). She was a very picky eater and I was trying to find a way to make something that she would eat that I could keep around for a while. Well I found that she would eat it, but I couldn’t keep it around for very long; she loved it that much.

Since then everyone I have ever made it for has told me the same thing, they love it and wish I would make it more often. I made a triple batch last night and it’s already half gone by this afternoon and my husband and I are the only ones who have been eating it.


  1. 1Mix salsa and honey together in a bowl, then separate half of the mixture into another bowl and set aside for later use.
  2. 2Mix all remaining ingredients together gently, including the first half of the salsa honey mixture. I generally use my hands to kneed the ingredients together as I have found you get a more thorough mix this way.
  3. 3Form into a loaf and place in baking dish or loaf pan. Bake at 350° for about 45 minutes.
  4. 4Top with remaining salsa honey mixture and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
