I'm always looking for recipes which are a slight variation on the typical meatloaf. This is a very tasty one.

1/2 pound ground beef
1 slice bread, torn into small pieces
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup shredded carrot
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped green pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped celery
1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash each pepper and garlic powder
5 tablespoons chili sauce or ketchup, divided
2 baked potatoes, optional
Shredded cheddar cheese, optional

In a bowl, combine ground beef, bread, egg, carrot, onion, green pepper, celery, seasonings and 2 tablespoons chili sauce or ketchup. Form into a loaf in pan. Spoon remaining chili sauce or ketchup over loaf. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Serve with baked potatoes topped with shredded cheddar cheese if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
