Bella's StoryThis is a really delicious version of Meatloaf that I really love. I like the sweet tang of the Chili Sauce. This is adapted from Martha Stewart's recipe, but I have changed a few of the ingredients to suit what I had in my pantry. It's just the two of us, so I made a small meatloaf, which was perfect!
NOTE - if you double the recipe, make sure you add a bit of time to the overall baking - about 1 hour and 15 minutes should do.
ground beef, lean
panko bread crumbs
milk or buttermilk
whole egg, slightly beaten
chili sauce (i like heinz)
small onion, minced
1 or 2
cloves garlic, minced
small red or green pepper, minced
salt and pepper to taste
extra chili sauce for basting on top

1Preheat oven to 350 and line a 9x9 baking tin with foil. Spray the foil with Pam to prevent sticking.
2In a saucepan, heat olive oil to medium. Add onion and pepper. Saute until just soft. Add garlic cloves and sautee an additional minute. Add vegetables to meat mixture
3In a large bowl, add beef, panko, milk, egg and chili sauce. Toss in the veggies and salt and pepper to taste. Mix very well, incorporating all ingredients. Shape into a basic loaf and place in pan. Slather additional Chili Sauce over the top of the loaf.
4If making a small 1 lb meatloaf, bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. If doubling the recipe, add another 15 minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
