Recipe: Horseradish Meat Loaf

My first recipe post--and it's not a pie recipe!   This is well-liked, especially by children; I have shared it many times!   Don't let the horseradish scare you!

This is one of my favorite recipes from one of my favorite cookbooks, Southern Living's Homestyle Cooking.   It's a collection of S. L.- tested recipes from community cookbooks.   I've made a few additions and changes after making this many, many times!

2 lbs. ground beef (I prefer 1 lb. gr. turkey & 1 lb. gr. beef)
3/4 cup uncooked quick oaks
1 large onion, finely chopped (I like to chop the onion and bell pepper in the food processor)
1/2 cup bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp. prepared horseradish (not sauce)
1 1/2 tsp. salt (for extra flavor, use garlic salt for part of the salt)
1/2 tsp. pepper

1/2 cup ketchup
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. prepared horseradish
2 tsp. spicy brown mustard

COMBINE first 9 ingredients in a large bowl; stir well.   Form mixture into a loaf and place in a 9 x 5 loaf pan.   I prefer to make mine free-form, on a greased baking sheet.

COMBINE 1/2 cup ketchup, br. sugar, 1 Tbsp. horseradish, and mustard in a small bowl, stirring well.   Spoon the sauce over the top of meat loaf.

BAKE, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 1 hour and 15-25 min.  Remove to a serving platter.   Yield: 8 servings

Finished product: tender, moist, with just a bit of crisp on the edges (end pieces are best) with a sauce that has just a slight bit of tang:
