Default Smokey Chipotle Meatloaf

Oh my!!


2 pounds ground beef -or-2/3 pound each ground beef, pork or Italian pork sausage, and ground turkey-or-1 pound ground beef, ½ pound ground pork, and ½ pound Italian pork sausage

3 eggs, lightly beaten

1½ cups finely torn or chopped crumbs (without crust) from French or Italian baguette

½ cup minced onion

½ cup sliced green onion

½ cup minced red bell pepper

½ cup minced green bell pepper

2 tablespoons minced or pureed garlic (6-8 cloves)

½ cup Smokey Chipotle Honey Barbecue Sauce

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons Spanish smoked paprika

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon dried thyme

2 teaspoons fine sea salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper



Topping

½ cup Smokey Chipotle Honey Barbecue Sauce


1. In a large mixing bowl, using your fingertips, combine the ground meats, lifting and separating the strands. Do not mash or knead! (The only meat that will require mashing with your fingertips is pork sausage, because of its high fat content, which makes it sticky and difficult to separate.) Reserve for a minute.

2. Wash your hands and switch to a large metal spoon for the remainder of the mixing.

3. In a medium mixing bowl, using a large metal spoon, combine the eggs, bread, onion, green onion, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, garlic, Smokey Chipotle Honey Barbeque Sauce, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper.

4. To make sure your meatloaf is properly seasoned before you bake it, put a spoonful into a sizzling, oiled nonstick skillet, mash it down, and sauté on both sides until browned and cooked through. Now taste, and adjust seasoning to the raw mix accordingly.

5. Divide and scoop the meat mixture out onto two sheets of foil. Weigh each half and redistribute to have two equal weight meatloaves. (For this testing, my loaves each weighed 1 pound 9 ounces.)

6. Using thin, disposable rubber gloves (or wrap your hands in plastic wrap), form each mound of meat into an oval loaf that is a consistent diameter from end to end (so the loaf cooks evenly).

7. Line an edged baking sheet with foil, carrying the foil up over the edges of the pan. Coat the foil with vegetable oil spray.

8. Position the two loaves on the foil and coat each loaf thickly with Smokey Chipotle Honey Barbecue Sauce.

9. Bake at 350º in the upper third of the oven for 65-70 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer registers 165º when inserted into the center of each loaf.

10. Remove from the oven, drape with a sheet of aluminum foil and let rest 15 minutes before cutting.

11. Slice with a serrated bread knife, using a light sawing motion.

12. Serve hot; or let cool, and then seal and refrigerate for making meatloaf sandwiches later.



Makes 2 loaves; each will serve 3-4.
