Author Notes: I have to admit the few times i have made meatloaf in the past, was not such a success.
So i was challenged by this contest, I was determined to make a great meatloaf!
I make a mean Bolognese sauce so I had this idea of approaching the the dish in a similar way,
by adding an Italian pepper, sauteing it with onion and garlic before adding to the meat.
I also mixed veal and beef together instead of just beef this time.
I did not have any ketchup so i made a sauce to top the loaf with a bit of a spicy kick.
its called "Oscar Night meatloaf" because I made it while watching the Oscars last night and then enjoyed a slice with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon,
The Meat Loaf turned out to be a perfect texture and was Oscar night worthy.

Hello chez lady S! Made your meatloaf tonight with the single change of using ketchup instead of your homemade glaze - it was delicious! Even my picky 10-yr-old ate TWO pieces - that's saying something! Thanks for sharing this.

Really like the homemade glaze . . . . I can easily buy June Taylor's ketchup (really, really tasty, by the way) so I usually have it on hand. It's nice to have a backup though, not to mention that you've added all those yummy flavors to your sauce. Very nicely done!!

June Taylor makes a mean ketchup but at $14 it's a bit excessive.
