  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat oil in heavy skillet. Add green onions, celery, garlic, carrot, onion and peppers and saute until sweated, about 5 minutes. Do not overcook. Set aside to cool. Combine salt, black and white peppers, cayenne, cumin, garlic powder, paprika, thyme, sugar and eggs in a large bowl and beat well. Add half-and-half and ketchup and blend thoroughly. Add meats, breadcrumbs, cilantro and cooled vegetables to egg mixture and blend thoroughly with hands for about 5 minutes. With damp hands, form the mixture into an oval resembling a long loaf of bread. Place on a cookie sheet that has been lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Cover with foil. Bake 45 minutes, then uncover and bake 15 minutes more. Let rest for 20 minutes before slicing and serving.

Cook’s Note

This meatloaf goes well with a cognac demiglace and mashed potatoes.
