Meat loaf has become so trendy that we find it on menus everywhere from diners to fancy restaurants. They're all a little different, but the Mr. Food Test Kitchen favorite is topped with a sweetened caramelized glaze of ketchup and brown sugar. Mmm!
Cooking Time: 1 hr 15 min
What You'll Need:
2 pounds ground beef
1 onion, finely chopped
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
3/4 cup Italian-flavored bread crumbs
1 cup ketchup, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
What To Do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onion, green pepper, egg, bread crumbs, 3/4 cup ketchup and the black pepper. Using your hands, mix ground beef mixture well and place in loaf pan.
3. Bake 1 hour. Brush with remaining ketchup, sprinkle with brown sugar, and bake 15 to 20 additional minutes, or until no pink remains. Drain, if necessary, then slice and serve.
