Cajun Meatloaf

This was a new recipe, and definitely a keeper! 

2 tablespoons of butter
1/3 cup of finely chopped onion
1/4 cup of finely chopped green pepper
1 1/2 Tablespoon of Cajun seasoning (I used Emeril's Cajun seasoning blend)
1/2 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 clove of garlic, minced or pressed
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 cup of ketchup
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 - 1.25 pounds of ground beef (I used 95% lean)

Glaze:
1/3 cup ketchup
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Melt butter in a large skillet, add onion and pepper and saut√© until tender.  Add all the seasonings (through bay leaf) and cook for several minutes.  Stir in the milk and ketchup, and cook about 2 minutes.  Remove the bay leaf, and let cool slightly. 
In a large mixing bowl, mix ground beef, egg, and oats.  Stir well.  Blend in the sauce mixture.  Form into a loaf, and place in a greased baking dish.  Bake for one hour.  I cut up potatoes, and drizzled them with Wegman's basting oil and put them all around the meatloaf. 
In a small bowl, combine ketchup, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce to form a glaze topping.  Spread on top of baked meatloaf.  Place under the broiler for a few minutes until bubbly.
