Meatloaf with Coca Cola Glaze

Southern Meatloaf with Coca-Cola Glaze

Meat Loaf

1 lb ground turkey
1 lb ground beef  80/20
2 cups whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 large white onion finely chopped
1 yellow bell pepper finely chopped
1 clove garlic finely minced
1 tbs balsamic vinegar
1 tbs worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tbs salt
1 tbs ground black pepper
1 tbs cajun seasoning
2 large eggs beaten
1 tbs butter unsalted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a food processor add enough fresh whole wheat bread to make 2 cups of crumbs.  Then in a hot pan saute,in butter, the yellow bell pepper and onion till translucent.  In a large bowl combine all ingredients and with your hands work it together.  Only work the meat and ingredients until it is well blended, but be gentle and don’t turn the meat into paste.  Move the meat to a lightly greased cookie sheet and hand mold the meat into a loaf.  Cover the meat in a heavy coat of the Coca-Cola Glaze and cook in the oven until the middle of the meat reads 160 degrees on a thermometer.  When the meat reaches the correct temperature, remove from oven and cover with foil (it will carry over to 170 as it rests). If you want more of a crust, add more glaze and place under the broiler till crust is formed, being careful not to burn.  Slice, Serve, Enjoy!
Coca-Cola Glaze
10 ounces Coca-Cola
1 tbs spicy mustard
1/2 cup ketchup
1 clove garlic minced
On medium-high, use a sauce pan and reduce the Coca-cola, after 10 – 15 min of reducing add the ketchup, mustard and garlic.  Lower the temp to a simmer and allow to continue for an additional 15 min.  The flavors will become rich and sweet, and the texture will be almost syrup like.  Remove warm and cover meat loaf.
