  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup of the chili sauce with the water. Add the oats, egg, chili powder, Worcestershire, and mix well. Add the decased sausage and the ground turkey or beef. Add the bell pepper, onion and corn and mix well. Divide the meat mixture in half. Lay half the meat mixture in a lightly greased 9X5x3" loaf pan.
  2. Create a shallow indent in the meat allowing the edges to rise along the edge of the pan. Layer the provolone and the spinach leaves on top of the meat along the center, staying about 1/2 inch away from the edges. Cover completely with the 2nd half of the meat mixture forming a domed top and sealing the edges.
  3. Bake uncovered for 50 minutes. Spread the remaining 1/4 cup chili sauce over the top of the loaf and bake until a meat thermometer inserted in the center of the loaf registers 165 degrees F. About 15-20 minutes longer. Allow the loaf to stand for 5-10 minutes before slicing.

What a nice change of pace from the ordinary meat loaf. I did change up the method somewhat because we have a couple of onion & pepper haters in the family. I used a food processor and pureed the onion, bell pepper and a chopped carrot until finely minced then added the chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder and egg to the bowl and pureed it all together. Add that mixture to the meat, oats and corn. All the flavor is there and the onion haters don't even know! I baked for about 30 minutes drained off a lot of grease and then back into the oven to finish. I did forget to add the chili sauce to the top but it turned out fine. Served with baked potato and steamed cauliflower and carrots.



I'm not sure this will take over our favorite recipe for meatloaf, but it certainly is a good one. I did not use a typical chili sauce but rather a Trader Joe's roasted tomatillo yellow chili salsa. I am not sure I used all the spinach called for, either. It took quite a bit longer for it to get done--probably because the meat was cold from the fridge--and I did drain fat from the loaf as it cooked from time to time. Thanks for a nice change of pace!
