1 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp sea salt
Mix all of the above really well setting aside1/2c Kowboy ketchup to glaze the top.
Place this mixture in the middle of a 9 x 13 pan and shape into an oval mound ( kind of like a football). Glaze the top with the reserved ketchup and bake 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the center reaches 160 degrees. Remove from the oven and let stand ten minutes before cutting.
(Note: this mixture is more moist than some recipes. If adding additional ingredients to make your own masterpiece, we suggest adding an additional ¼ to ½ c of breadcrumbs).
*Note: To be gluten free use an 1/8 c of oat bran in place of breadcrumbs.
