Bowl #1:
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp. red pepper( I like a bit more for taste)
1 tbsp. cumin
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp black pepper

Bowl # 2:
1 c. chopped green bell pepper
1/2 c.chopped green onions
1 c. chopped yellow onions
1/2 c. chopped celery
1/2 stick of butter
2 tbsp ketchup
1/2 c evaporated milk
1 1/2 tbsp worchestershire sauce
1 tsp tabasco

2 eggs
1 c bread crumbs

Bowl #3:
2 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork

Combine all spices in a mall bowl and set aside. Use pot, not pan: Melt butter and add veggie mix. saute' that until onions are clear on med/high heat.
Add spice mix and cook some more.
Add ketchup/evaporated milk mix; cook until it thickens just a little. Set aside to cool a little ( enough to be able to mix with hands)
Use an 8x10 casserole dish:
Mix meat together then ad the bread crumbs and eggs
Add the sauce mix. Remove bay leaves.
Mold into a loaf in ungreased pan
At this point I put it in the fridge to make it stay better and preheat oven now.
Cook at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, then
at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until done.

From Daphne:
This is Allie's recipe;; it is wonderful!!!!! I don't remember what the prep time was or how many it served. I don't think it took very long to put together, and it seems like I got two loaves out of it.
I still get requests for it!!
