I was watching Food Network last weekend and happened across a show I’ve never seen before – Cooking for Real. It’s a cute show and is also where I found this recipe. I didn’t follow it exactly b/c I don’t like tomato sauce with my meatloaf, H really likes my meatloaf recipe and my oven-proof pan was in the dishwasher…so I decided to do the whole thing on the stove top. It was really tasty and cooked up MUCH quicker than a traditional meatloaf. Will definitely make again.
1lb Lean Ground Beef
Italian Bread Crumbs (I never measure, sorry…just keep adding until the mixture comes together)
2 Cloves Garlic
1t Minced Onion
2 Leaves Sage, chopped
2 Leaves Basil, chopped
S&P to taste
2 Bell Peppers – any color
Combine beef, egg, bread crumbs, garlic, onion, sage, basil and S&P in a bowl. Mix with hands until throughly combined.
Cut bell peppers into large rings.
Stuff peppers with meatloaf mixture and add to lightly oiled pan.
Cook over medium-high heat, 7 minutes on each side (might vary depending on the thickness of your patties).
Let sit 2 minutes before serving with rice pilaf and a salad (or the sides of your choice).
