Porter House Meatloaf

My husband LOVES himself some meatloaf. So when I was inspired to make him this retro classic I looked to no other than the Queen of Southern Cuisine – Paula Deen. Taking her advice as I always do, I made the recipe according to her precise measurements. We were in LOVE but when the second time came around to make this dish I had a few extra spices and seasonings in the house and I decided to add them to the mix. As if it wasn’t good already, it was even better. So from that point on I have been making it the re-mix way. Like the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.”

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup chopped Vidalia onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 package Lipton Onion Soup mix
  • Glaze Topping
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Honey Dijon mustard

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a skillet saute diced onion and bell pepper until they become tender.

Next in a large bowl, combine the ground beef, tomato paste, onions, green pepper, oats, egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and soup mix. Shape mixture and place in a loaf pan.

In a small bowl, whisk together the ketchup, brown sugar, and mustard. Slather the glaze on top of the meat loaf and bake until the meat loaf is firm and cooked all the way through, about 1 hour. Serve hot with your favorite side dish & Enjoy!

* Chef’s Tip – Leftovers make a killer sandwich 🙂

    This meatloaf is absolutely scrumptious and delicious and the family goes completely bonkers over it. Not to mention, “TO DIE for BANANA PUDDING”. It’s a family treat of excitement. When the two sisters get together…..it’s really magical. Holiday time is really special. You must place your requests.

    • So very true. I only get a chance to go home 1-2 times a year and we have people who literally want to meet me at the exit when I get off the interstate. They really take this food thing serious. We even had a fight to breakout one year. REALLY? We have to make sure we have ALOT for everyone to enjoy.
