Farmer's Meatloaf

Lauren Conforti


I came across a recipe years ago for this type of meatloaf, but each time I make it I sort of "wing-it" and do my own. It's a versatile recipe and you can change it up by using salsa instead of the ketchup to give it more of a south western taste.
** Great to cook on a grill! Just cover with foil & cook away from direct coals for and hour or two until done!
** Great freezer recipe! I used 1 1/2 lbs ground beef & a little extra veggies and made 2 loaves, one to freeze!
