  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms in the butter for 2 to 3 minutes; stir in the garlic, diced tomatoes, oregano, basil, ground mustard, curry powder, and red pepper; continue to cook until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms are golden brown, about 5 minutes; set aside.
  3. Combine the beef, veal, sausage, egg, 3 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 cup ketchup, mustard, and teriyaki in a bowl; mix gently with your hands. Fold in the mushroom mixture and breadcrumbs. Shape the resulting mixture into a loaf and move to a baking dish. Lay the bacon slices on top of the loaf.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes.
  5. While the meat loaf bakes, prepare the glaze by whisking together the 1/3 cup ketchup, 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce, and yellow mustard in a bowl. Pour the glaze over the loaf and return to oven for another 10 minutes. Allow meat loaf to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

I made this for my love on Valentine's Day. It was a great twist on regular meat loaf! The flavors were really nice and my boyfriend really enjoyed it. I used panko breading, however, since I di...

As unpleasant as its name.
