We hosted our Supper Group tonight and had a total of 10 adults for dinner. Being the host, I was in charge of preparing the main dish. I decided to try this "gourmet-ed" up version of meatloaf. It was a very pretty way to serve what can typically be messy slices of meatloaf - I got lots of compliments on it too :o)
1 green bell pepper
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground turkey
2 slices white bread, cut into cubes
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes with basil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
A few dashes Worcestershire sauce
A few dashes hot sauce
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Remove core and seeds from peppers. Slice into 1 inch rings and place on nonstick baking sheet. You should get about 3 rings per pepper. In a large bowl mix together beef, turkey, bread, 1/2 cup of the tomatoes, garlic, egg, onion, chopped sage, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and season with salt and pepper. Press meatloaf mixture evenly into pepper rings.
In a skillet over medium-high heat, add oil. Saute meatloaf rings on both sides until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.
Add remaining tomatoes to skillet and bake until cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes.
