Kitchen and Kids Meatloaf

When I grew up meatloaf was a staple in our house, but I can’t say it was a favorite, and the same goes for my husband. However, I knew that I must figure out a way to make sure my children had the experience of meatloaf, but packed with a bit more flavor than what we had known. Thus my quest for killer meatloaf. I would like a repertoire of different types of meatloaf, so if you would like to share yours, I would love it.

Here is what I came up with for my latest meatloaf. I hope you enjoy it.

With meatloaf it is very important you gather all of your ingredients ahead of time. It will make things a lot easier.

2 lbs ground beef
2 bell peppers, diced (I use red and orange for color, but any is acceptable)
1 onion, diced
2 c. Italian-style bread crumbs
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 c. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 egg
1 Tbl. garlic, minced
1 tsp. Accent Seasoning salt
3/4 tsp. pepper, fresh ground
ketchup for topping

1.) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

2.) Mix all of your ingredients together.

3.) Place into one large loaf pan, or two smaller loaf pans.

4.) Top with a bit of ketchup.

5.) Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Bon Appétit!

This is a favorite meatloaf at our house. However, if you are looking for a less traditional meatloaf but one packed with flavor you might enjoy my Mini Italian Meatloaves.

    i think meatloaf is on our menu this week. maybe i’ll friday food post it and then link it here. i LOVED meatloaf growing up… in fact it’s usually what i asked for for my birthday dinner. (and i use my mom’s recipe.)
    a lot of people don’t like meatloaf… but i don’t like a lot of meatloafs that i’ve tried. my husband doesn’t like meatloaf, but he likes mine. i think it’s more of a hamburger taste and less additives. but i don’t know. he just told me, “it’s ’cause it’s crusty.” …so maybe i shouldn’t post it. 😛
