Ingredients

  • 3

    tbsp. butter

  • 1

    large onion, finely diced

  • 1

    medium green bell pepper, finely diced

  • 1

    large celery rib, finely diced

  • 1

    tsp. thyme

  • 2

    lbs lean ground beef, preferable sirloin

  • 1/2

    c. rolled oats

  • 2/3

    c. ketchup

  • 2

    eggs, beaten

  • 2

    tsp. salt

  • 1 1/2

    tsp. freshly ground pepper

  • 3

    slices of bacon, halved crosswise (optional)

Directions

1. In a large skillet, melt the butter over moderate heat. Add the onion, green pepper, celery and thyme, reduce the heat to low and cook, covered, stirring one or twice, until the veggies are very soft, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat; cool to room temperature. 2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the cooked veggies and the beef. Add the oats, 1/3 cup of the ketchup and the eggs, salt and pepper; mix well. Spoon the meat mixture into a large shallow baking dish. Form the meat into a flat loaf about 2 inches high and smooth the top with the back of a spoon. Spread the remaining 1/3 cup ketchup over the loaf; arrange the bacon strips on top. 3. Bake the meatloaf for 1 hour, or until it is just cooked through and shows no trace of pink. (145 degrees with meat thermometer) Let the meatloaf stand for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
