Yummy Meatloaf

October 3, 2013

Meatloaf gets a bad rap. Despite having a rather unappetizing name, it can come out pretty yummy if you do it right. I made some for D after he got his wisdom teeth pulled, since it is easy to eat. It also happens to be one of the comfort foods he really likes. This version has lots of seasoning and is full of veggies. This keeps it from drying out and means dinner will be a hit.

You will need:

  • 1/3 + 1/2 c ketchup, divided
  • 2 T prepared mustard
  • 2 T brown sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 c chopped carrot
  • 1 small bell pepper, chopped (we used a red one)
  • 1 T Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 c breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 c milk
  • 1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 t pepper
  • 1 t oregano

Then you will…

  1. Preheat your oven to 350. Lightly grease a bread pan or a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together 1/3 cup of ketchup with the mustard and brown sugar.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. (I recommend using your hands so that it isn’t over mixed).
  4. Press the meat mixture into the loaf pan or free shape it and lay it on the baking dish.
  5. Spread the sauce on top.
  6. Bake 45 minutes to an hour until cooked through and browned on the outside.
