I have been looking for a good meatloaf recipe and found this one from Alton Brown.
Alton Brown Meatloaf Recipe
The picture doesn't do this justice but I forgot to take picture before, so this is after. This was moist and flavorful. Made a meatloaf sandwich the next day and it was delicious.
Oven rack should be in center position. Preheat oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
Combine croutons, black and cayenne pepper, chili powder, and thyme in food processor. Pulse until it becomes crumbs, Place in large mixing bowl. Add onions, carrots, garlic and red pepper to food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Don't overpulse should not be puree. Pour into bowl. Add the chuck and sirloin to bowl. Add salt and mix well. Don't squeeze the meat.
Press the meat mixture into a loaf pan. Turn it over and place on baking sheet. Cook 10 minutes and pull out from oven and remove loaf pan.
Cook Meatloaf another 55 minutes. Mix the ketchup, cumin, hot sauce and honey in bowl and stir well. Once the meatloaf has cooked that 55 minutes, pull out and brush topping on top. Cook additional 10 minutes.
Let meatloaf cool 10 minutes before serving.

These are flavorful and extremely easy.
Preheat oven to 400.
Wash and pat dry drumsticks. Spray a 9x13 pan and place the chicken in it.
Combine ingredients and mix well. Pour on top of the chicken and cover thoroughly. I did this twisting with tongs.
Cook in oven for 30 minutes. Take chicken out and turn over. Cook for an additional 30 minutes. Take out again and turn cook for remaining 15 minutes.
Ready to serve.
