I saw a recipe for this in one of my Cooking Light cookbooks. I’ve altered the recipe a little bit and these turned out FANTASTIC! Very easy – and extremely delicious!
1 lb. ground beef (I used 93% lean)
1 lb. ground turkey
4 oz. pepperoni, finely chopped
1 white onion, chopped
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
12 oz. jar red peppers
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup pizza sauce
1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Heat a skillet; drizzle Olive Oil into it. Add chopped onion and garlic and red pepper flakes. Sauté until translucent.
Drain the red peppers; place in bowl of food processor and process until finely chopped. Add the cooked onion mixture and pulse to chop and combine.
In a bowl, add beef, turkey and pepperoni. Add egg, bread crumbs, salt & pepper; mix to combine. Add the onion/red pepper mixture – mix to combine.
Form into 8 – 10 individual meat loaves. Cook at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from oven; spoon the pizza sauce onto each loaf, and spread. Return to oven and cook for an additional 30 minutes. Fantastico!
