I love to try diffent ways to make meatloaf..This one I really like and even my husband said this was the best meatloaf he had ever tasted and he's very picky, so thought maybe I should share it with all of you..so here you are, hope you like it
1Preheat oven 350
Prepare loaf pan or oblong pan with large piece of foil placed in opposite direction this will avoid the loaf from sitting in the grease while baking, making for an easy clean up.
In a medium sized bowl mix together, onion, carrots, jalapenos, basil, oregano, pepper Lipton onion soup mix, ½ can of tomato sauce, milk, grated cornbread muffins with beaten egg.
2Add ground beef, crumbling between fingers to make sure all is incorporated.
Mix well and form into a meatloaf.
Place meatloaf on top of foil in pan, place strips of bacon on top
Bake on middle rack for 45 mins. When done cover with the foil that is draped over the sides of the pan. Let rest while you prepare the sauce.
In a small sauce pan on low to medium heat add tomato sauce, mustard
Jam, and a little water if too thick. Simmer until jam is well blended.
Serve over meatloaf and enjoy!!
*note: according to taste add or delete more or less jalapeno peppers
Also you can add them to the sauce for more spice
