Ingredients

* 6 ounces garlic-flavored croutons

* 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* 1 teaspoon chili powder
* 1 teaspoon dried thyme
* 1/2 onion, roughly chopped
* 1 carrot, peeled and broken
* 3 whole cloves garlic
* 1/2 red bell pepper
* 18 ounces ground chuck
* 18 ounces ground sirloin
* 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1 egg

For the glaze:

* 1/2 cup ketchup
* 1 teaspoon ground cumin
* Dash Worcestershire sauce
* Dash hot pepper sauce (I used Frank’s Red Hot)
* 1 tablespoon honey

Directions

Heat oven to 325 degrees F.

Add the croutons, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and thyme in the food processor.  Pulse until well combined and place in a large bowl.  Now add the onion, garlic, carrot and red pepper in the food processor and pulse again until well combined. Add this vegetable mixture to the crouton mixture in the bowl. Add in the beef and gently mix together with hands, careful not to press the meat too much. Add in the egg and gently combine. Press meat mixture into a loaf pan for shape and turnover on to a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes while you put together the glaze.

Combine the ketchup, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce and honey in a small bowl and whisk together. Brush the glaze onto the meatloaf after it has been cooking for about 10 minutes. Cook for another 35-40 minutes or until internal temperature has reached 155 degrees.
