This old-fashioned meat loaf is packed with tender chopped onion and bell pepper and topped with ketchup.   Serve with mashed potatoes and green beans for a meal that will remind you of Sunday dinner at Mama's table.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl, tossing to moisten bread. Crumble meat over onion mixture, and stir just until blended. Pack mixture into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Spread ketchup over top of loaf. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until meat loaf registers 160°. Let loaf stand in pan 10 minutes.

Step 3

Remove meat loaf from pan; cut loaf into 6 slices.

Step 4

Sandwich suggestion: Serve leftover slices on whole-wheat bread with mayonnaise, lettuce, and cheddar cheese.
