Old Fashioned Meat Loaf


This is a recipe from Paula Deen. I found this in the magazine Woman's World. This is the one recipe that my youngest son just loves and my husband is crazy about it also. They call it "bumpin" meat loaf! It is very easy to make and I always make two loaves at once and freeze the other for a later time. This will not last long at your table!


1lb ground beef

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped bell pepper (any color)

1 large egg, lightly beaten

8 oz can diced tomatoes with juice

1/2 cup quick-quicking oats


Topping

1/3 cup ketchup

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp mustard


Preheat over to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine all meat loaf ingredients and mix well. Transfer to a baking dish and shape into a loaf. In a small bowl, mix topping ingredients and spread on loaf. Bake 1 hour, or until cooked through. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

It has been a while since I make meatloaf. Now looking at this post, I think I should make it sometimes soon. :)
