Kathy's Really Good Meatloaf

You'll need:

1 lb each ground turkey, chicken and pork (you can also use the traditional meat loaf mix - beef, veal and pork)
2 eggs
1 cup each onions and peppers, chopped very fine (use a multi-color pepper mix if possible)
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1 to 2 tsp each celery salt and garlic salt (to taste)
pepper to taste
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 slices thick sliced bacon

Place onions, peppers, drained tomatoes and seasonings in a food processor and chop fine. Meanwhile, place meat in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle blade. Add eggs and mix very well on low. Add the vegetables from the food processor and mix well. Add bread crumbs and let the mixer run until smooth. This will give your meatloaf a fine texture like lunch meat.

Place mixture into a large loaf pan. Shape the top by mounding the mixture and top with bacon slices. Bake in a 450 degree oven for one hour. Allow to cool a bit before serving. Pour off excess juices if desired.

NOTE: This meatloaf can stand on its own and doesn't need gravy or tomato sauce poured over top. I often just serve it with plain brown rice and haricots verts (fresh thin green beans blanched and then sauteed in butter with lemon juice and parsley).
