This is a family favorite. It's a great way to get some veggies into the kids.

Sometimes I do 2lb of pork, veal and beef mixture instead of all beef.

This meatloaf is very tender & moist with the added vegetables.

Ingredients

2 lb
ground beef or (1lb beef & 1lb pork)
1
onion, medium, finely chopped
1
bell pepper, large, finely chopped (i used a red pepper)
2
carrots, finely chopped
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1 c
panko bread crumbs, seasoned
2
eggs
1/2 c
milk
1/4 c
ketchup
1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
1 clove
garlic, minced
1 tsp
seasoned salt
1 tsp
parsley, dried
1/2 tsp
basil, dried
1/4 tsp
ground black pepper
1/2 c
tomato sauce

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350°F
2Finely chop onion, bell pepper and carrots. I use the mini food processor for this step. It's just easier.
3Saute the onion, bell pepper & carrots in the olive oil for about 8-10 minutes or until soft.
4Set vegetable mixture aside to cool down a little.
5In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, then add in milk, ketchup, worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, seasoned salt, parsley, basil, black pepper and panko bread crumbs. Mix until combined.
6Add ground beef and cooled vegetables and gently mix until combined. Be sure not to overmix, this will toughen the meatloaf.
7Pat the mixture into a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Spread the tomato sauce on top.
8Bake in oven until no longer pink inside for 1 hour - 1 hour & 15 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the middle reads 160°F.
9Remove from oven, let rest for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
