Ingredients (meatloaf):

  1. 1 lb. ground beef
  2. ½ lb. ground pork
  3. ¼ cup instant oatmeal
  4. 1 egg
  5. 1/3 cup minced onion
  6. 1 ½ Tbsp. JAVA RUB Bloody Mary
  7. 2 Tbsp. crushed tomatoes
  8. ½ tsp. celery salt

Ingredients (topping):

  • ½ cup crushed tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp. JAVA RUB Bloody Mary
  • 2 tsp. fresh horseradish
  • 2 Tbsp. vodka
  • ½ tsp. celery salt


Mix all meatloaf ingredients together and mold into a loaf shape.

Place in a loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees about 1 hour.

While baking the meatloaf, mix all topping ingredients in a small saucepan and cook until hot and starting to thicken.

When meatloaf has been in the oven for an hour, remove from the oven and place in a shallow, oven safe serving pan.

Spread topping over meatloaf and return to oven for an additional 10-15 minutes. Remove, cool 10 minutes, slice and enjoy! It’s JAVALICIOUS!

This meatloaf is traditional in the sense that it is tomato based, but it does not have the usual “sweetness” associated with traditional meatloaves as there is no catsup in the recipe.  However, the flavors of a Bloody Mary are very discernible. I suggest serving this meatloaf with roasted potatoes (you might try them roasted with olive oil and our JAVA GRIND) and a nice garden salad: simple yet sensational!
