Peppered Meat Loaf Recipe



Peppered Meat Loaf Recipe

I came up with this easy dinner one day while experimenting in the kitchen.
Ingredients :
3 large baking potatoes, peeled and quartered lengthwise
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 large onion, chopped
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
3/4 cup crushed saltines
1/2 cup ketchup
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon seasoned pepper
3 pounds ground beef
1 pound spicy bulk pork sausage
SAUCE:
1 cup ketchup
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Cut three 25x3-in. strips of heavy-duty foil; crisscross so they resemble spokes of a wheel. Place strips on bottom and up sides of a 6- or 7-qt. slow cooker. Coat strips with cooking spray. Top with potatoes.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, onion, tomato sauce, saltines, ketchup, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, seasoned salt and seasoned pepper. Add beef and sausage; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into a loaf; transfer to slow cooker. Combine sauce ingredients; pour over top.
Cook, covered, on low until a thermometer inserted into meat loaf reads at least 160° and potatoes are tender, 6 to 6-1/2 hours. Using foil strips as handles, remove meat loaf to a platter.
