Boston Market Corporation--formerly Boston Chicken Inc.--grew rapidly after its start in 1985. The quick expansion, however, proved to be the demise of the firm, and in 1998 Boston Market was forced to declare bankruptcy. McDonald's Corporation purchased the struggling chain of restaurants in 2000 and implemented a turnaround strategy designed to rebuild the Boston Market brand. In 2002, the company operated 650 company-owned restaurants in 28 states that offered home-style entrees, fresh vegetables, sandwiches, salads, soups, side dishes, and desserts. Boston Market also offers catering services along with frozen meals available in supermarkets through a partnership with HJ Heinz Company.

Meatloaf






Boston Market Meatloaf
Copycat Recipe

1 cup tomato sauce 
1 1/2 tablespoon Kraft barbecue sauce 
1 tablespoon granulated sugar 
1 1/2 lbs lean ground beer
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour 
3/4 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon onion powder 
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 
dash garlic powder

Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine the tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat the mixture until it begins to bubble, stirring often, then remove it from the heat.
In a large bowl, add all but 2 tbsp of the tomato sauce to the meat. Use a large wooden spoon or your hands to work the sauce into the meat until it is very well combined. Combine the remaining ingredients with the ground beef,  flour, salt, onion powder and ground pepper. Use the wooden spoon or your hands to work the spices and flour into the meat.

Load the meat into a loaf pan (preferably a meatloaf pan with two sections which allows the fat to drain, but if you don't have one of those a regular loaf pan will work). Wrap foil over the pan and place it into the oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, take the meatloaf from the oven, remove the foil and, if you aren't using a meatloaf pan, drain the fat. Using a knife, slice the meatloaf all the way through into 8 slices while it is still in the pan. This will help to cook the center of the meatloaf. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of sauce over the top of the meatloaf, in a stream down the center. Don't spread the sauce. Place the meatloaf back into the oven, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or until it is done. Remove and allow it to cool for a few minutes before serving.

  1. I made this, but made a few changes. I used ground beef, instead of the beer lol, and also added minced garlic, onion and celery for flavor and crunch, and one egg, and a tablespoon of ketchup to the tomatoes mixture. It didn't bind very well, but the flavorsame were delicious and it was a big hit for my family. thank you for the base recipe! also, I did find it similar tasting to Boston Market
