Better Meatloaf

Chase Carleson from Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen stops by Good Day to make a meatloaf that he says is better than your mom's. Cheddars now has 13 locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen Meatloaf

For the Meatloaf:
1 lb. ground beef
1/3 cup onions, diced
1/3 cup green bell peppers, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped 
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup of milk 
2 tbsp. dried parsley 
1 tbsp. salt 
1 tbsp. pepper 
2 eggs
1 tbsp. ketchup
1 cup Breadcrumbs 

For the Sauce:
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce  

Creating the Meatloaf:
In a large saute pan, add the fresh-diced onions, green bell peppers, fresh chopped garlic and melted butter. Saute until vegetables are slightly golden.

Add this mixture to a bowl with the remaining ingredients for the meatloaf: milk, dried parsley, salt and black pepper, ketchup, eggs and breadcrumbs. Combine well. Add in the ground beef and mix evenly.  

Press the mixture into a meatloaf pan.

Creating the Glaze:
Add the ingredients for the sauce – brown sugar, Worcestershire and ketchup – in a saucepan and cook at a medium heat until the ingredients are mixed well.

Now, top the meatloaf with the glaze. Place it in the oven 45 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Enjoy!
