How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 275 to 300 degrees F.
  • Spread the cornbread crumbs on a sheet pan and let toast for about 20 minutes, or until lightly toasted and dry.
  • Turn oven up to 350 degrees F.
  • In a skillet brown the bacon until crispy.
  • Drain.
  • To the same skillet add the red pepper, jalapeno, and garlic and cook until soft.
  • In a bowl, combine the cornbread crumbs, bacon, and vegetable mixture.
  • Add parsley and salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  • In medium skillet over medium heat add oil, margarine, red onions, jalapeno and garlic.
  • Cook until caramelized, remove from heat and let cool.
  • In a bowl combine the meat, salt, pepper, parsley, thyme, mustard, ketchup Worcestershire, and eggs and thoroughly mix.
  • Divide the meat mixture in half.
  • Shape 1 half into a rectangle, creating a canoe, and then loosely fill with stuffing.
  • Do not pack it in.
  • Use the other half of the meat to fully enclose the stuffing.
  • Transfer to the oven and bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.
  • Layer the cheese slices on top and bake for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
  • Remove from oven and let rest for about 10 minutes.
  • Cut into thick slices and serve.

    Sorry Points - I just now saw both of your coments! For the herbs, I use dried most of the time because the fresh ones always go bad before I use them. I think most of the time I have seen Guy use fresh.

    As for the oil, the recipe is exactly as it was on the web page from his show. I rarely follow recipes like this word for word when I am cooking them, and I should have clarified that when I posted. The only oil that I used was to saute the veggies, and, I would have eyeballed that amount. I would never add oil to meat, as far as mixing it into the meatloaf. I would think it would make it too greasy, even though I always use the 7% lean.

    SOO SORRY that I didn't see your questions before you mixed it up. I hope it turned out well for you!

    Ok. This is in the oven now. I have a question about the oil. You show 3T+3T right under the meatloaf ingredients. No instruction about in what ingredients the oil is to be used in. Or at least I don't understand.

    I used 1T to saute each vegetable mix in and the remainder 4T to mix in the meatloaf for a 6T total.

    Please clear up the recipe so I can understand it.

    Wow! What a production this loaf sounds like. Will have to put this on my things to do list. I was looking for some dish for my jalapeno and bell peppers.

    Are the parsley and thyme fresh or dried?
