Let us start with the ground beef, a good ground beef, maybe an 80/20 something like that. All right we going to kind a break it down just a little bit and we’re going to add a teaspoon and about a quarter of salt and take a fourth of a teaspoon of a pepper. All right, now I have got like a half of a large onion and a diced bell pepper. We’re just going to mix that in there with that. All right so we just going to mash that bell pepper and onions up into the hamburger meat, kind a get that incorporated along with that salt and pepper. We’re going to take one egg and give it just a few beats, just a little bit. And we were going to add a fourth of a cup of oatmeal and this just gives your meatloaf a real light and fluffiness to it. And then we’re going to take a can of just diced tomatoes and their juice.
So you can see I am starting to try and work that in to kind of a loaf shape right now. I’m just going to take that out and put it into our dish. And the thing I like about my Peggy’s meatloaf is she didn’t top it with just ketchup. She takes a fourth of a cup of ketchup and about tablespoon of mustard, a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar and just mixes these those together and the brown sugar is so good in there. You know just kind of a get that meatloaf just a little sweetness on the outside and we’re just going to brush that on our meat, then that look yummy!
So this one is ready to go in the oven and we’re going to put it in at 350 preheated oven and we’re going to let it cook for about 45 minutes to an hour. Before we know it, we are going to have a wonderful aroma coming from the oven. Look at that meatloaf. That looks good and I can smell those bell peppers.
