How to make it

  • Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • In a food processor bowl, combine croutons, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and thyme. Pulse until the mixture is of a fine texture.
  • Place this mixture into a large bowl.
  • Combine the onion, carrot, garlic, and red pepper in the food processor bowl. Pulse until the mixture is finely chopped, but not pureed.
  • Combine the vegetable mixture, ground sirloin, and ground chuck with the bread crumb mixture.
  • Season the meat mixture with the kosher salt.
  • Add the egg and combine thoroughly, but avoid squeezing the meat.
  • Pack this mixture into a 10-inch loaf pan to mold the shape of the meatloaf. Onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, turn the meatloaf out of the pan onto the center of the tray.
  • Insert a temperature probe at a 45 degree angle into the top of the meatloaf. Avoid touching the bottom of the tray with the probe. Set the probe for 155 degrees.
  • Combine the catsup, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce and honey. Brush the glaze onto the meatloaf after it has been cooking for about 10 minutes.
  • If it starts to smoke, you have cooked it too long.

    This is just wonderful. Saving it. I will use heinz 57 instead of ketchup...(I have a ketchup thing...can't believe I'm from the south...LOL). Can't wait to try. Thanks for sharing.

    This sounds amazing and will try it soon. My kids and hubby love meatloaf! I like the glaze ingredients! Usually I use ketchup, brown sugar and dry mustard. This sounds better and I will rate it once I have tried it! :)
