1 cup chopped/diced frozen green bell pepper, defrosted
1 cup chopped/diced frozen onion, defrosted
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup low-salt ketchup

Remove sausage from its casing and mix with the ground beef. Add the garlic, green bell pepper, onion and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well. Shape meat into 2 loaves, about 3 inches wide and 6 inches long.
Remove baking tray from oven and place loaves on the tray. Bake 10 minutes. Meanwhile, mix ketchup with brown sugar and mustard. Remove meatloaves from oven and spread the ketchup mixture over them. Return meatloaves to the oven and bake 5 minutes. Makes 2 servings.
