Paula Deen's Meatloaf
1 lb ground beef
1 1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 C chopped onion
1/2 C chopped bell pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten
8 oz canned diced tomatoes with juice-I like petite diced
1/2 C quick-cooking oats-I use old fashioned oats, refrigerate loaf before baking to soften
1/3 C ketchup
2 Tblsp brown sugar
1 Tblsp prepared mustard
1. Mix all meatloaf ingredients, shape into a loaf (this is a soft mix) and place in baking dish.
2. Mix all topping ingredients and spread on loaf.
3. Bake at 375 degrees for one hour.
6/15/14 Update: I made this with a pork/veal/beef mix (a little over 1 lb) and used half jalapenos that were cleaned very well and half red bell pepper-amazing! Giving the oats a quick run through the food chopper is nice too.
Have a happy day:@)
