Preparation time

I love meatloaf. It's such a nostalgic meal. This one is easy to put together, and even has the ketchup topping. Enjoy! Remember to handle the meat as little as possible so that it stays tender.

or16 oz of beef, ground, 90% lean meat / 10% fat, raw (452 g)
or1/2 cup, chopped of onions, raw (80 g)
or1/2 cup, chopped of peppers, sweet, red, raw (75 g)
or1 tsp of salt, table (6 g)
or1 tsp, ground of spices, pepper, black (2 g)
or2 tbsps of sauce, worcestershire (34 g)
or1 large unit of egg, whole, raw, fresh (50 g)
or1/4 cup of bread, crumbs, dry, grated, seasoned (30 g)
or1/2 cup of catsup (120 g)
or1/4 cup of molasses (84 g)
or1/4 packed cup of sugars, brown (55 g)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onions, bell peppers, salt, pepper, worcestershire sauce, egg, and breadcrumbs. Mix with your hands or until just combined.
Pat the meat mixture into a loaf pan that has been lined with parchment paper (easy to remove!).
Bake for 60 minutes, or until a thermometer registers at least 165 degrees.
For the topping; mix the brown sugar, molasses, and ketchup together. Pour on top of the meatloaf, and broil for 5 minutes, or until warmed and bubbly.
