How to make meatloaf skewers

Making meatloaf on a stick is a fun way to serve up this classic recipe.

DIP WOODEN SKEWERS Start by soaking your wooden skewers in water so they don’t burn while cooking.

MIX MEAT MIXED Combine ground beef with spices, sauce and egg and mix until combined. Then prick them on a wooden skewer and shape them into a thin loaf. Make sure the meatloaf is an even thickness so it cooks evenly.

OIL BRUSH Once your meatloaf skewers are prepped and ready to go, brush them with roasted garlic infused oil on both sides. Grill on a medium hot surface (about 375 degrees F). Turn halfway through cooking to brown both sides.

DRIZZLE WITH MORE SAUCE Just before the end of the meatloaf, brush the skewered meat with more Sweet Mesquite & Ale Sauce and let it caramelize for the last minute or two.

SERVE WITH CREAM SAUCE While the skewers are grilling, make a quick creamy herb sauce for dipping. Simply combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix.

The creamy and fresh sauce paired with the hot and spicy meatloaf skewers is a delicious combo.

We also like to pair the meatloaf with crispy cucumbers and lemon wedges. It’s a fun meal to make and eat while camping!

For the meatloaf

  • Soak the wooden skewers in water for about 10 minutes to prevent them from burning during cooking. Meanwhile prepare the meatloaf mixture.

  • Combine ground beef, egg, Si Si Cilantro Seasoning, Nashville Hot Seasoning, minced garlic, onion powder, salt, black pepper, cumin and 2 tablespoons of Sweet Mesquite & Ale Sauce in a large bowl and use clean hands to mix.

  • Divide the meat mixture into 8 equal pieces, then shape them into mini loaves about 4-5 inches long. Stick the stick into the meatloaf, then brush each side with the roasted garlic infused oil.

  • Grill over medium-high heat (about 375 degrees F), for about 10 to 15 minutes, turning halfway through cooking. Just before the end of cooking, brush the meatloaf with the remaining 2 tablespoons of Sweet Mesquite & Ale sauce. Cook until the sauce is lightly caramelized. Remove the meatloaf skewers from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes.


The internal temperature of the meatloaf should reach at least 145 degrees F. when finished cooking.
