It felt like a meatloaf night so I looked at recipes I had saved and this stood out as a promising potential. I make a good meatloaf but wanted to venture out a bit. Not only did it taste great but the diced green and red peppers and purple onion gave it a confetti look...very pretty. My son particularly liked the topping sauce. We all gave it a thumbs up and there were requests to repeat this recipe in the future. A great choice for good old fashioned meatloaf.
