I have a thing for meatloaf. My grandmother made it so well that it has always held a special place in my heart. I was so intrigued by the idea of using a meatloaf recipe to stuff into peppers, so I had to try this recipe for Roasted Red Pepper Meatloaf from Tasty Kitchen member Caressa immediately. I’m so glad I did.

To make it you will need: ground beef, milk, egg, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, diced onion, minced garlic, salt, mustard powder, pepper, large red peppers (except I used green), ketchup, brown sugar, and the optional slices of bread which I didn’t use but you could if you wanted something crusty to soak up the meatloaf juice. (Caressa highly recommends it.)

Description

Oh man. Can I just tell you how amazing this meal is? How great it smells? How wonderful it tastes? I love this dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • ½ cups Milk
  • 1 whole Egg
  • ¾ cups Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • ½ cups Finely Diced Onions
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¾ teaspoons Dried Ground Mustard
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 3 whole Large Red Peppers, Cut Into 1.5" Rounds
  • 1 cup Ketchup Mixed
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 8 slices Bread (optional But Highly Recommended)

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Mix the beef, milk, egg, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, onions, garlic, mustard, and black pepper with your hands in a bowl. Divide the mixture into eighths and fill into the pepper rounds. Make sure you smoosh (yes, smoosh) them down to completely fill them.

Mix the ketchup and the brown sugar. Top each pepper round with the ketchup mixture and place on top of a slice of bread.

Set each bread/pepper on top of a baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160ºF. Cool for 10 minutes, serve and sigh with happiness.

I have to say, you can totally omit the bread, but it gets so fantastically toasty and crunchy and becomes the perfect way to enjoy this meatloaf.

Good meatloaf. Next time I’ll skip the brown sugar in the topping. Too sweet for my tastes.

I’m sure this is good with green pepper, but I just don’t like green peppers and I’ve learned that making stuffed peppers with red peppers is wonderful!!! Try it!
