  • 12 ounce jar roasted red peppers (drained and diced; Trader Joe's brand)
  • 4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3.2 ounces Ritz crackers (crushed into crumbs; that's two small sleeves)
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • Let mix rest for 15 minutes.
  • Stir together the topping sauce and set aside.
  • Place meatloaf mix in a mounded loaf in a double meatloaf pan with perforated insert.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, then spread with topping and bake for 40 minutes more or until internal temp is 165F.
  • Let meatloaf rest about 15 minutes before slicing.

Notes

The double thickness of pan causes the increase in bake time but the great part is that it also wicks away grease; from the kitchen of palatablepastime.com
