    Heather3271's Note:

    Being a Midwesterner born and bred, I (Heather) have had more than my fair share of meatloaf. As a child, I ordered open-faced meatloaf sandwiches every single time I went to my grandparents' diner. My grandpa said it was going to come out of my ears! :-) This recipe from Food & Wine magazine (Feb 1989, p. 131-132)is by far my favorite. The flavors are well balanced, and the oats redeem this fat-laden dish with a whole grain.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large skillet, melt the butter over moderate heat. Add the onion, green pepper, celery, and thyme. Reduce the heat to low; cook covered, stirring one or twice, until the vegetables are very soft (about 20 minutes). Remove from heat; cool to room temperature.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350°F In a large bowl, combine cooked vegetables and beef. Add oats, 1/3 cup ketchup, eggs, salt, and pepper; mix well. Spoon the meat mixture into a large shallow baking dish. Form the meat into a flat loaf about 2 inches high and smooth the top with the back of a spoon. Spread the remaining 1/3 cup ketchup over the loaf; arrange the bacon strips on top.
    3. 3
      Bake the meatloaf for 1 hour or until it is just cooked through and shows no trace of pink. (A thermometer will register 145°F in the center of the loaf). Let the meatloaf stand for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
    4. 4
      NOTES: For my large family, I double the recipe and increase cooking time to approximately 1-1/2 hours. A dash of Worcestershire sauce or Pick-A-Pepa kicks up the flavor nicely. You can also substitute turkey bacon, or omit the bacon and add a dash of liquid smoke. Using tomato paste on top of the meatloaf instead of ketchup adds a tangy flavor.

      Classic recipe no matter what you add or omit this will taste GREAT! I used a pinch of Thyme. I'm not that crazy about the flavor of thyme. I aslo added in Cajun seasoning and a jalepeno pepper. Still came out GREAT!

      Lovely recipe!! I followed the recipe off pat but improvised with adding 3 cloves garlic in the "vegetables" - I omitted the salt as well and the bacon - the end result was very moist and cutting slices for sammies was a dream. I served the meatloaf with steamed eggplant, baby jacket potatoes and patty pan squash - making a homemade low fat gravy. Was lovely. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
