Mr. Food: Old Fashioned Meatloaf

What You’ll Need

2 pounds ground beef
1 onion, finely chopped
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 egg
3/4 cup Italian-flavored breadcrumbs
1 cup ketchup, divided
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar

What to Do

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onion, green pepper, egg, bread crumbs, 3/4 cup ketchup, and the black pepper. Using your hands, mix ground beef mixture well and place in loaf pan.

Bake 1 hour. Spoon on remaining ketchup, sprinkle with brown sugar, and bake 10 to 15 additional minutes, or until no pink remains. Drain, if necessary, then slice and serve.
