Ingredients

Meatloaf

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 large red pepper diced
  • 1 large yellow onion diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced (or 1 tbsp jarred minced garlic)
  • 1 lb raw lean ground beef (93% lean, 7% fat)
  • 1 lb raw lean ground turkey (93% lean, 7% fat)
  • 1 cup oats (old fashioned or quick cooking work)
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 large eggs (beaten before added to the meatloaf mix)
  • 1 tsp Lawry's Seasoned Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper

Ketchup Glaze

  • 1/4 cup reduced sugar ketchup (I use Heinz)
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar (I've also used apple cider vinegar)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil.

  2. In a medium skillet heat olive oil over medium heat and add onions and red peppers. Cook until softened and then add minced garlic. Continue to cook for about 30 seconds or until the garlic becomes fragrant. Remove from heat and from the pan so they can cool off for about 5 minutes.

  3. In a small bowl add ketchup and vinegar. Mix together and set aside.

  4. In a large bowl add ground turkey and beef, oats, Worcestershire sauce, beaten eggs, cooked onions/peppers/garlic, and salt & pepper.

  5. Mash together with hands until combined well, but take care not to over mix the ingredients otherwise you'll have dry meatloaf.

  6. Dump the meatloaf mix onto sheet pan and form a loaf and spread glaze all over it.

  7. Place into oven and cook for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let it sit for 10 minutes to let the juices distribute. Serve warm and enjoy!
