"My family kept turning up their noses at my meatloaf. I tried several recipes in hopes of finding one that they would all like. They told it was just too darn plain for their taste. I tried adding oatmeal or rice instead of dry bread crumbs, adding different kinds of veggies, I used canned tomatoes, or ketchup, or tomato paste, or different styles of tomato sauce, even different spices until I came up with this one. When I saw all plates clean and being asked for more, I knew I had found the one they liked and the keeper for our family."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I sometimes will even use 1/2 cup of grated carrots as well when I use bell peppers instead of canned diced green chiles. If I use bell pepper, I will also make up an envelope of brown gravy that I have added 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms to as well. Use all ground beef or 1 pound beef and 1 pound ground pork.
  • I save a little tomato sauce (1/4 cup tomato sauce) to pour on top in the last 15 minutes of baking if I not going to make a brown gravy to serve with it.

very tasty meatloaf. used regular tomato sauce and added some chili powder. skipped the chopped green chiles, only because i didnt have any. and also used pork, veal, and beef mixture as opposed to just ground beef.
