Cajun Meat Loaf

2 whole bay leaves
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup finely chopped onions
1/2 cup green bell peppers, chopped
1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup catsup
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup very fine bread crumbs

Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Melt the butter in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the
onions, celery, bell peppers, green onions, garlic, tabasco,
Worcestershire and seasoning mix. Saute until mixture starts sticking
excessively, about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally and scraping
the pan bottom well. Stir in the milk and catsup. Continue cooking
for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and
allow mixture to cool to room temperature.

Place the ground beef and pork in an ungreased 13x9-inch baking
pan. Add the eggs, the cooked vegetable mixture and the bread
crumbs, remove the bay leaves. Mix by hand until thoroughly combined.
In the center of the pan, shape the mixture into a loaf that is
about 1-1/2 inches high, 6 inches wide and 12 inches long. Bake
uncovered at 350F for 25 minutes, then raise heat to 400F and
continue cooking until done, about 35 minutes longer.

Serve immediately as is or with Very Hot Cajun Sauce for Beef.
This is best using both ground pork and ground beef, as the pork
gives more flavor diversity. However, you can make it with ground
beef only.
