Cajun Meatloaf

Hey, Smokin’ and Grillin’ wit AB Fam! Are you ready to take your grilling game to the next level with a mouthwatering Cajun twist? Today, we’re diving into a flavor-packed recipe that will have your taste buds dancing – Cajun Meatloaf!

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil or Branch and Vine
  • 1 medium (9 oz) yellow onion, finely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 medium-size (3 1/2 oz total) celery stalks, finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 small (7 oz) green bell pepper, finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Creole seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 lb ground chuck
  • 8 oz ground pork
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 3 Tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp ketchup, divided
  • 1 Tbsp light brown sugar

Instructions

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, around 375-400°F (190-200°C).

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion, celery, and green bell pepper. Sauté until vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground chuck, ground pork, breadcrumbs, Creole seasoning, black pepper, chopped parsley, eggs, and 1/4 cup of ketchup. Add the sautéed vegetables and mix until everything is well combined.

Shape the mixture into a loaf and place it on a sheet of aluminum foil sprayed with cooking spray. Shape the loaf to fit your grill’s cooking area, making sure it’s not too thick to cook through evenly.

In a small bowl, mix together the remaining 2 tablespoons of ketchup with the brown sugar. Spread this mixture evenly over the top of the meatloaf.

Place the meatloaf directly on the grill and close the lid. Grill for about 45-55 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F (71°C) on an instant-read thermometer.

Once cooked, remove the Cajun meatloaf from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing.
