Georgia's Million Dollar Meatloaf (Named by my hubby)

2-3# ground chuck

2 eggs
1/4 # crushed saltine crackers (1 sleeve)
Water to moisten
1/4 green pepper
1 medium onion
2 large stalks  celery with leaves
5 baby carrots
1 t. coarse black pepper
1 and tsp. garlic salt
4-6 dashes hot pepper sauce

Combine ground beef, eggs, crushed crackers in bowl and add just enough water to slightly moisten the crackers. In a food processor or chopper, combine the onion, pepper, celery and carrot and pulse until fine. Add this and remaining ingredients together and mix well.  Add a few shakes of hot sauce into the mixture. It will  look a little dry but during the cooking process, the juices of the vegetables will add to this.  Form into loaf or place in large loaf pan. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for at least an hour or until nicely browned. Then turn oven down to 300 and cover lightly with foil and bake another 1 and 1/2 hours until done.  For a little more "zip" sprinkle top with additional hot sauce.
