Haven't gotten to make this yet but I saw Paula Deen's show today and my mouth was just watering. YUM! Paula's show was on "Elvis's favorite foods with a twist". This meatloaf was one of the recipes and I thought I would share it with everyone.

We really thought this was good. I replaced the green pepper with red because that's what I had. This is a change up from my regular recipe for meatloaf and will be making it again.
I made this meatloaf exactly as written except I always sweat my onions and green peppers for meatloaf just enough to soften before adding to the meat mixture. Delightfully tasty flavors. We do not glaze our meatloaf with ketchup and the family declared it a keeper.
Anything I can make that my 6-year old son will eat is a winner in my book. This had wonderful flavor, and was enjoyed by the entire family (except my 3-year old son). I will definitely make this again!
