Cajun Meatloaf

This meatloaf is from The Pioneer Woman. It's a nice twist on the traditional meat loaf - but admittedly didn't really have a cajun flavor to it, even with quite a bit of Frank's poured in. Still tasty, though!

Excuse the recipe without a photo - they came out quite unappealing...

Cajun Meatloaf
3 whole bell peppers
2 whole medium onions
1 bunch of celery (5-6 ribs)
8-10 cloves of garlic
6 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Few shakes of hot sauce
2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup milk
1-2 cups breadcrumbs
2 pounds ground beef
1 pound ground pork
3 whole eggs
2 tablespoons honey

Preheat oven to 400.

Chop all the veggies (pepper, onion, celery into small dice and mince the garlic). Over med-high heat, melt 6 tablespoons butter. Once butter begins to brown, add the veggies and garlic. Add about 1 tablespoon salt. After these have cooked a few minutes, add 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1 teaspoon cayenne. If you want to, add the hot sauce now. Next add 1/2 cup ketchup. Continue cooking and stirring for a few more minutes than remove from heat.

After it cools a few minutes, add 1/2 cup milk. Stir until combined. Add at least 1 cup breadcrumbs; continue adding until mixture is a nice thick paste. In a large bowl, mix the group beef and pork. Whisk 3 eggs and add to meat. Mix the veggie mix into the meat.

Spray a sheet pan with non stick spray. Using your hand, move the meat mixture to the pan and make it into a loaf that's about 1.5 inches thick and 6-8 inches wide. In a small bowl, mix 3/4 cup ketchup with 2 tablespoons honey. Slather that sauce all over the top of the meatloaf.

Bake for about 40 minutes.
