A recipe for you

I won my hubby's heart with this meatloaf (just kidding I had his heart long before I could cook)
Seriously though, he never thought he liked meatloaf until he tried mine.  This is not your mommas meatloafWe love this one and it is great served with garlic mashed potatoes or this french bread Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It is a favorite go to recipe when I want to take a meal to someone too ( it travels well) It is so moist and for someone who like veggies very well it's a way to get them with out really tasting them

The Best Meatloaf
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 eggs
2/3 C. milk
3 slices bread run through the food processor to make crumbs
1 finely chopped onion
1 C. grated carrot
1 C. grated cheddar cheese
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Mix all together well and form into a loaf
top with mixture of
1/4 c brown sugar
1 tablespoon mustard
1/4 C ketchup
Bake 350 degrees for one hour or until internal temp reaches 170

Substitute Italian bread crumbs for the bread and use mozerella cheese for the cheddar, and add 1 cup grated zucchini  for a bit of an italian twist

  1. Yum that sounds good!! I will try this soon :)

  2. It looks and sounds delicious, Debbie...I have to try it because my meatloaf is nothing to write home about!!


  3. This is VERY similar to the one I've been making for years.....it's SO good. Mine has oatmeal instead of bread crumbs and no carrots, but I could try adding those next time!! Mine also has onion soup mix powder instead of onions, so similar flavors. I think the topping makes it!
