Barbecue Confetti Meatloaf
Source of Recipe
List of Ingredients
1/2 pound extra-lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 ounces corn kernels, drained and chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon soft bread crumbs
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons red bell pepper, chopped
3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place ground beef in a mixing bowl. Add spices and salt and pepper to the ground beef. Add corn, onion, breadcrumbs, eggs, bell pepper and barbecue sauce, mixing lightly but thoroughly using clean hands (it's the only way to do meatloaf). Shape beef mixture into big blobby blimp and place on a baking sheet (with sides). Bake for 45 - 60 minutes or until cooked through. Cut loaf into slices and serve with warmed salsa.
OR, for less cooking time (same oven temp), use a muffin tin. Lightly grease the muffin cups and fill with meatloaf mixture. Bake for about 35 minutes or until cooked through.
