Best Ever Meatloaf
2 pounds of ground beef.
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, chopped
Bread crumbs - I process 2 pieces of bread in processor for this.
Mix together in large bowl.
Pour 1 large can tomato sauce in a small bowl. Add 3/4 to 1 cup brown sugar and approximately 2 tablespoons of plain yellow mustard. Mix together and add all but approximately 1/2 cup to the meat mixture.
Spray pan with no-stick cooking spray. I use a 9 x 13 pan and make 2 small loaves, but you can make 1 large loaf if you prefer. The smaller loaves cook faster.
Pour the remaining tomato sauce mixture over the meatloaves. If you want, garnish top of each with strips of bell pepper.
Bake at 350 degrees until done, approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours, depending on size of loaves.
If a lot of liquid accumulates in the pan, you can spoon some of this off during the cooking time. Leave some of it, as it cooks off, and keeps the meatloaf from becoming too dry and burning the bottom of the pan.
