This ragin’ Cajun meatloaf is sure to mix things up in the dinner rotation. It’s one of those dishes where it can convert someone who is a self-proclaimed “meatloaf hater” into a “loaf lover”.
Chop all of the fresh vegetables (peppers, onions, celery) into a small dice and mince the garlic.
Over a medium-high heat melt 6 tbsp. butter. Once butter begins to start browning, add the diced vegetables and garlic. Add about 1 tbsp. salt.
After these have cooked for a few minutes add 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp. black pepper, 1 tsp. cayenne pepper, and 1 tsp. ground nutmeg. If you like it hot, add in a couple shakes of your favorite hot sauce.
Next, add in 1/2 cup of ketchup. Continue cooking and stirring for a few more minutes and then remove from heat.
After allowing the mixture to cool for a couple of minutes add about 1/2 cup of milk. Stir until combined.
Next, add at least 1 cup of bread crumbs. Continue adding bread crumbs and stirring until mixture is a nice, thick paste.
In a large mixing bowl place the ground beef and pork and combine.
Whisk 3 eggs and add to the meat mixture. Add vegetables. Keep working all of the Cajun-veg mix into the meat until all is blended well.
Spray a sheet pan with some non-stick cooking spray. Next, using your hands, form your meat mixture into a loaf on the sheet pan. Make the loaf around 6-8 inches wide and about 1 1/2 inches tall.
In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together 3/4 cup of ketchup with about 2 tbsp. of honey. Slather this sauce over top of the whole meatloaf.
Place into a 400 degree oven for 40-50 minutes.
