Today I'm presenting my meatloaf recipe. I have to be honest - I am not a meatloaf fan (nor is my daughter). But the hubby-he ADORES it! Not only on the night I cook it - his very favorite thing is making meatloaf sandwiches for the next couple days. And even though I'm not a fan, I don't mind this recipe - I actually really like the "sauce" that's spread over the top. I should also mention that we don't use ground beef, we only use ground turkey in our house.
1 lb ground turkey (or beef)
1 1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten
8 oz can diced tomatoes , Italian flavored, with juice
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1/3 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp mustard
2 Tbsp brown sugar
Prheat oven to 375. Mix all ingredients well.
Place in a 9x13 baking dish and arrange into a loaf shape.
Mix topping ingredients together in a small bowl.
Spread topping over entire top of loaf.
Bake for one hour.
Serve with some yummy sides- usually garlic and Parmesan mashed potatoes and green beans in our house!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!!
