Introduction

This is slightly modified from a recipe provided in the Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine. They have replaced the traditional ketchup topping with red pepper puree, and used oats instead of breadcrumbs for a binder. This one's a hit in our family, even with the kids.

Ingredients

    3/4 cup rolled oats
    1 onion, quartered
    1.5 tsp EVOO
    1 jar (16 oz) Mezzetta roasted bell peppers, drained
    1/2 cup grated parmesan
    2 TB finely chopped parsley
    1/2 cup Egg Beaters
    1.25 pounds 93% lean ground beef

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375. Use a food processor to coarsely grind the oats & transfer to a large bowl. Put the quartered onion in the food processor and finely chop.

2. In a medium skillet, heat EVOO over medium. Add the chopped onion and cook, stirring, until softened (about 5 min). Remove from heat and let cool.

3. Puree the roasted peppers in the food processor. Set aside 1/3 cup. Whisk the remaining puree into the oats, along with the cooled onions, 6 TB parmesan, parsley, eggs, 1.5 tsp salt, and .5 tsp pepper. Crumble the ground beef into the bowl and mix with CLEAN hands to combine.

4. Mold the meat mixture into a 9x5 loaf pan, then spread the reserved roasted pepper puree on top. Bake for 50 minutes, then sprinkle with remaining 2 TB of parmesan, and bake for 5 more minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
