My daughter-in-law makes the moistest, most wonderful meatloaf in the world. This is her recipe adapted to fit into peppers. You can also make the meatloaf by itself. Just pat into a loaf pan and bake for 1 hour 10 minutes, or just until done in the center and slice. It's just delicious and is even better cold in a sandwich days later-thanks, Mary!
