Claim Jumper Meatloaf
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 green onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons minced green bell pepper
2 tablespoons grated carrot
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 1/2 pounds ground chuck
3/4 pound ground pork
1 cup bread crumbs (such as Progresso)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup ketchup plus an additional 1/4 cup ketchup (for top)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Sauté green onion, garlic, green pepper, and carrot in vegetable oil over medium heat for a couple minutes.
Combine beaten eggs with milk, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a medium bowl.
Mix bread crumbs and flour into ground chuck and ground pork with your hands. Add egg and milk mixture, sautéed veggies, 1/4 cup ketchup and mix it up using your hands. Get in there and squish it all around for a while. Enjoy yourself.
Press the mixture into a meat loaf pan (the kind of pan with drainage holes in the bottom) or a large loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes, then spread 1/4 cup of ketchup over the top of the meatloaf and bake it for another hour.
Let it sit for a bit after you remove it from the oven before you slice it to serve.
