Don't Judge a Book by its Cover

Ok, so meatloaf isn't the most attractive food in the world, but what it lacks in appeal makes up in flavor. In fact, after playing around with ingredients last night, this was one of the best things I've ever tasted and it's not even bad for you! I paired it with brown rice (flavored with lipton onion soup mix).

1 Lb Lean Ground Beef
3/4 Cup of minced (or chopped) onion
1/4 Cup minced red pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
2 tsp Worcestershire
1/4 Cup Ketchup
1 egg
1 tsp minced garlic
1 cup bread crumbs (I use Kellogg's Cornflake crumbs)
Few dashes of hot sauce (this can also be added on top of the mound before baking)
Mix together with your clean hands, form into a long mound and place into a greased and foiled loaf pan (I use PAM)
Bake at 425 for 30 minutes, baste if necessary (mine didn't need it); lower temp to 375, cook for an additional 25 minutes. Remove from oven, cool for ten minutes, place onto a platter and enjoy! I like mine with ketchup.
Brown rice (with half a packet of Lipton's onion soup mix)
Steamed Aspargus or broccoli go well with this meal too
