Diner meatloaf, by sharon

It’s only within the last few years that I decided I really like a good meatloaf.  After some trial and error, this is one of the best I’ve come up with.

2 pounds ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 egg
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 cups ketchup
4-5 slices of bread

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Soak the bread in a tiny bit of milk and stir until it starts to fall apart.  Sautee the garlic, onion, and green pepper until the onion is translucent.  Stir into the bread crumbs and let cool slightly.  Add the egg, brown sugar, 1 cup of the ketchup, and beef.  Mix (with your hands, get over it) and then spread it into a 9×13 baking pan.  Spread the remaining 1/2 cup of ketchup over the top and bake for approximately one hour.  Remove from oven, pour off any grease that has collected (the meatloaf will have shrunken depending on the leanness of the meat).
