Meatloaf for my Gardner Guy

I like making this meatloaf, but the seceret is having a nice meat loaf pan that allows the extra grease and juices to drain to the bottom of the pan, great tasting meatloaf....
This one is made by kitchen aid...there is a lot of different brands on the market and they are not expensive, so try one it makes a big difference....

My Gardner Guy's Meatloaf...

2 teaspoons cooking oil
1 green onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBSP minced green bell pepper
2 TBSP grated carrot
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup of milk
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of garlic power
1/2 teaspoon of onion power
1 1/2 pounds of ground beef (ground chuck)
3/4 pounds of ground pork or ground turkey
1 cup bread crumbs (such as Progresso)
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup ketchup plus an additional 1/4 cup for the top

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Saute green onion, garlic, green pepper, and carrot in cooking oil on a medium heat until slighty tender.
Combine beaten eggs with milk, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion power in a medium bowl.
Mix bread crumbs and flour into your meat. Add eggs, milk, sauted vegetables, 1/4 cup of ketchup.
Press the mixture into a meatloaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes, then spread remaining 1/4 cup of ketchup over the top of the meat loaf and bake for another 45 -60 minutes.
