Estelle's Autumn Mosaic

"What are you doing?"

"Trying to decide what to make for dinner....something  that I know he will like..."

"Hey, what about meatloaf....he always likes your meatloaf."

"Yes, but I kind of wanted to make something a little different.
What's the best meatloaf you ever tasted?"

"Actually, it was a meatloaf that Miss Irma, AKA Ohio Grandma, made last year.
She actually grilled it and I do think it was the best meatloaf I ever tasted!"

Miss Irma, A.K.A. "Ohio Grandma" and Luke

"OK, then....that's the ticket! Thanks for the inspiration!"

1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
1 egg
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 t. dried parsley flakes
1 t. onion powder
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dried oregano
1 t. dried basil
1/2 t. pepper
1 t. salt
1-1/2 lbs. ground chuck
Cooking spray
Additional ketchup, for brushing

Combine the first 13 ingredients. Add the ground chuck and mix well, using your hands. Shape the meat into individual loaves. Freeze until partially frozen, approximately 30 minutes. Preheat a barbecue grill to medium.

Spray a grill basket or grill pan with cooking spray. Place each loaf into the grill basket and sear over indirect heat for 10 minutes. Flip each loaf and sear the other side for another 10 minutes. Flip once more and close the lid. Cook for another 10 minutes, or until the meat is no longer pink, and a meat thermometer inserted into one of the loaves reads 160°F. Brush each loaf with ketchup. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
