I love my meatloaf. I love it with mashed potatoes, I love it with baked potatoes, I love it with French fries, I love it smothered in gravy, and I love it when it has bacon in it. I especially love my glaze. OK, I think you’ve got it now. I love my meatloaf. A meatloaf sandwich on toast with melted cheese? YUM! I could eat it every day.
Tonight, we’re having it with baked potatoes. I put two potatoes in the oven at 400 ° F while I prepared the meatloaf. Once I put the meatloaf in, I turned the oven down to 350 ° F.
6 slices bacon, cooked crisp
1 ½ lbs ground meat (I use 1 lb beef and ½ lb pork)
¼ – 1/3 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic
1 or 2 mini sweet peppers, chopped
1/3 cup dry red wine
1 beef bouillon cube
1/3 cup quick cook oatmeal
1/3 – ½ cup milk
½ + cup bread crumbs
1 TBSP Worcestershire
1 TBSP prepared brown mustard
1/3 cup ketchup
4 TBSP ketchup
4 TBSP brown sugar
1 rounded TBSP brown mustard
Cook bacon and set aside. When cool, crumble.
Pour the wine in a small bowl. Add the bouillon and heat for 30 seconds in your microwave. Mash the bouillon with a fork. Add oatmeal, milk, bread crumbs, Worcestershire, ketchup, mustard, egg, and pepper. Whip with a fork until blended. Set aside.
Mix ground meat with onion, garlic, and sweet pepper. Add the small bowl of liquid and thoroughly mix. Shape into a loaf and bake at 350 ° F. Remove from oven and add glaze. Return to oven and bake another 15 – 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 ° F
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and pour over meatloaf about 15-20 minutes before meat is fully cooked. Let some of it run over the sides.
