Holiday Stuffed Meat Loaf

Figured I'd throw this recipe out there. I dreamt it up while swimming, actually. Still, I don't think it's highly original. It's probably been done before. Still, who doesn't like some comfort food in the winter?

What you'll need:
1 lb. ground beef or turkey
1 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
salt, pepper
mozzarella cheese
1/2 a green pepper, 1/2 a red pepper
1/2 an onion
2 cloves garlic
Olive Oil

In a skillet with olive oil, saute the peppers, onion, and garlic.
Then, in a bowl, mix meat, bread crumbs, egg, milk, salt and pepper with clean hands. Mix it well. Put HALF of the meat mixture in a bread pan (or whatever you have). Then, put a layer of mozzarella, all the sauted veggies, and another layer of mozzarella. Then add the rest of the meat on top of that. Squirt enough ketchup on the top to coat, and spread evenly with the back of a spoon. Cover dish with foil and bake at 375 degrees for a half hour or so. Voila! When you serve it, notice the middle represents all the colors of Christmas. Serve with whatever sides you desire.
