Amazing Meatloaf - My Way

I get raves on this from anyone and everyone that eats it - meatloaf lovers and non-lovers. I know it looks like a lot of ingredients, but almost all are things I regularly have on hand. You gotta put some flavor into it- otherwise, just bake a chunk of meat and it will taste like 80% of the other meatloaf recipe's on this site. Please enjoy and if you have any recommendations please share.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Cook the bacon in a saute pan until crisp. Remove bacon, save for a BLT or something else (will not be used in the meatloaf).
  • In the same pan of the bacon fat, add the 2 tbl of olive oil and saute red peppers, shallots and garlic until soft, about 5-8 minutes (do not burn).
  • Take the croutons, put them into a plastic bag, and crush with a meat mallet until very finely crushed.
  • In a large bowl, mix the meat and the remainder of the ingredients (except the Montreal steak seasoning) by hand, not overworking, until everything is just combined. Season with salt and pepper.
  • On a baking sheet, spray with a non-stick cooking spray, and dump the meat mixture onto it. Form into a loaf.
  • Top with the Montreal steak seasoning.
  • Bake until center reaches 160°F, about 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours, or until cooked through.
  • Serve with a sauce.
  • Topping Sauce: Heat ketchup, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until combined.
