Meat Loaf Tropicale
Categories: Fruits, Hamburger, Main dish, Meatloaf, Vegetable
Yield: 6 servings
1-1/2 lb. Lean Ground Beef
1 cup Bananas; Ripe, Mashed (2 Large)
1/2 cup Green Bell Pepper; Chopped
1 tsp. Mustard; Prepared
1/8 tsp. Allspice
2 Tblsp. Onion; Chopped
1 Egg; large
1/2 cup Oats; Quick Cooking
1 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
2 slices Bacon
3 Tblsp. Orange Marmalade
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix all of the ingredients, except the bacon and marmalade, together. Spread the mixture in an ungreased loaf pan, 9 X 5 X 3-inches. Crisscross the bacon slices on the top of the meat mixture and spread the marmalade over the whole thing.
Bake, uncovered for 1 to 1-1/4 hours. Drain off the excess fat and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.
Note: The bananas add a unique, almost mysterious flavor and a special moistness to this elegant meat loaf.
