The original recipe is listed below with my changes in italics.
Old-Fashioned Meatloaf - from Paula Deen
1 pound ground beef (I used 1.5 lb ground venison)
1 1/4 teaspoons salt (I used 3/4 tsp and I still felt like it was too salty)
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion (1 small onion)
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper (1 small pepper)
1 egg, lightly beaten
8 ounces canned diced tomatoes with juice (I used the first can of my homemade diced tomatoes, but next time I would drain the juice - it was too runny)
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats (I used between 3/4-1 cup)
I also added:
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon prepared mustard (I used MUCH less, just a tiny squeeze)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. (I did 400). Mix all meatloaf ingredients well and place in a loaf pan.
Mix ingredients for topping and spread on loaf. Bake for 1 hour (mine took 1.5 hours to be done).
I didn't mind this recipe, although I think I like my other meatloaf recipe from my mom better. With the tomatoes in the loaf and the ketchup on top, I found it too tomato-y. I also thought it was too salty. The FD thought it was delicious.
