I love a good meatloaf. I made meatloaf just last night. Here's how it went together.
We bought some lovely, very tomato-ey BBQ sauce at the Spoon River Scenic Drive. No idea who makes it, but it's not available in stores.
Here's what went in:
- One pound each of ground beef and ground pork
- Two Eggs
- 1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
- 1/2 Green Bell Pepper, diced
- 1/2 onion, diced
- Black pepper
- Loads of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire
- Panko, italian bread crumbs, and crushed saltines (had a lot of dry breads to rid myself of).
- A small amount of a very tomatoey BBQ sauce (not store-bought)
I topped it with a glaze made of that same BBQ sauce, loads of ketchup, honey, and worcestershire. I coated the meatloaf with the sauce and put it in the oven at 500 degrees for the first 10 minutes to dry on the sauce and brown the meat, then down to 375 for the next 45. After that, I put another layer of sauce and then some ketchup swirls, and back in the oven another 10 minutes.
Served with the rest of the sauce.
My only regret was not cutting the peppers/onions smaller, and/or sauteing them first. They made it too crumbly, and it was hard to cut. It was very good.
Yes, this post mostly exists because I haven't touched my blog in 2 years, 1 month. But I love meatloaf, too. P.S. I also chopped up a strip of bacon to go in with the meat.
