How To Make meatloaf pepper boats
Cut bell peppers into halves lengthwise, leaving part of stem on, and scoop out seeds and membranes.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Sauté the onion and pepper in the olive oil for about 2 minutes; add garlic and sauté another 2 minutes.
Mix the meat, sautéed vegetables, seasonings, ketchup, egg and rice in a medium bowl.
Mix well and pack into the pepper halves, mounding each one like a meatloaf. Place in a baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. Then apply 2 tablespoons extra ketchup to the top of each pepper boat if desired, and continue baking another 15 minutes.
Peppers are done when meatloaf reaches internal temperature of 160°.
