Tyler's Ultimate Meatloaf

"From the FoodTV show Tyler's Ultimate. I watched him make this the other day and it really looked amazing. The relish really seemed to moisten it and it looked good enough to eat on it's own. Posting for myself, but would love to hear from anyone who's tried it."

Ready In:
1hr 45mins




  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Coat a skillet with a 2-count of oil and place over medium heat. Saute the onion, garlic, and bay leaves for a few minutes.
  • Add red peppers and cook them for a couple of minutes until soft. Add tomatoes.
  • Stir in the parsley, ketchup and Worcestershire; season with salt and pepper.
  • Simmer relish for 5 minutes then remove from the heat.
  • Place the torn white bread in a bowl and add the milk to just barely cover, swish the bread around in the milk and let it sit while you get the rest of the ingredients for the meat loaf together.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef and pork with 1 1/2 cups of the tomato relish, the eggs, and thyme; season with salt and pepper.
  • Squeeze the excess milk from the bread and add the soaked bread to the meat mixture.
  • Transfer the meat mixture to the center of a lightly oiled cookie sheet and form into a log (around 9 x 4-inches).
  • Coat the top of the meatloaf with another 1/2 cup of the tomato relish and then lay the bacon across the top lengthwise.
  • Bake the meatloaf for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until the bacon is crisp and the meatloaf is firm, rotating the meatloaf periodically to ensure even browning.
  • Remove the meatloaf from oven and let it cool a bit before slicing.
