Comfort Food, Meatloaf

For meatloaf:
1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground sausage
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 green pepper, finely chopped
1 roasted red pepper, chopped
1 Tbs ketchup
2 Tbs Worcestershire
2 large eggs
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3/4 t black pepper
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°.
In a large bowl combine all ingredients except cooking spray.
Mix well with hands and shape into an oblong loaf.

You may use one 5” x 9” bread loaf pan, or 2 mini loaf pans.
Coat the pan of choice with cooking spray.
Press the meatloaf mixture into the pan so that it fits well.
Bake 40 minutes uncovered.

For glaze:
1/4 cup ketchup
3 Tbs Dijon mustard
3 Tbs brown sugar

Mix the glaze ingredients together.
Remove meatloaf from oven and pour most of the glaze on top and spread evenly, reserving a bit.
Return to oven and bake another 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes.
Gently transfer meatloaf to a serving platter and top with remaining glaze.

Serves 6 to 8.

*This recipe may easily be halved for dinner for 2. If you don’t have mini loaf pans, you may simply shape the mixture into a mini loaf and bake it in a baking pan.
