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.

How to Make Meatloaf alla Dee

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!
