Great recipe! My family really enjoys this meatloaf. I took it to a familyr reunion and it was a real hit with everyone there. I really like the surprise of the green pepper inside, makes a pretty presentation. I made the recipe exactly as written.

Good flavor, but I added chopped onions to ingredients just because we like onions.
