Recipe by Kats Mom

An easy meatloaf with a slightly crunchy veggie texture. Flavorful sauce adds that classic slightly sweet & tangy tomato flavor. HINT: To reduce fat, I bake this for one hour, pour any grease off and *then* pour the sauce over and then bake for the last 15 minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Chop onion and green bell pepper.
  3. Gently mix ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, green bell pepper, 1/2 of the tomato sauce, egg, salt, and pepper until combined.
  4. Do not overmix. Form into a loaf and place in a shallow pan.
  5. Whisk together the rest of the tomato sauce, water, brown sugar, mustard, and vinegar until smooth. Pour over the meatloaf.
  6. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, basting with pan juices about every 20 minutes. Let rest 15 minutes before cutting and serving.
