Meatloaf may not sound very exciting, but it is such a great meal to keep in the dinner rotation. This is Kent's recipe, and it is so good! It would be great for kids because you can easily hide a few veggies in it.

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 - 1 cup of bread crumbs
1 egg
1/8 cup of mustard
1/4 cup of ketchup
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup onions
1/3 cup carrots
1/3 cup celery (optional)
1/3 cup green bell pepper (optional)
2 cloves of garlic, minced

Finely chop the onions and carrots (and any optional veggies). Saute the vegetables in 2 tablespoons of butter and season with a pinch of salt and pepper - cook until the onions are clear. In a large bowl, mix together the beef, bread crumbs, mustard, ketchup, egg, salt, pepper, cooked vegetables, and garlic. Once everything is mixed, place it in a loaf pan and pat it down into the pan. (You could also form the mixture into a loaf and bake it on a sided sheet pan.) Bake at 350 for 45 minutes - 1 hour. Serve with ketchup!


  1. I am not even joking when I say I needed a good meatloaf recipe!

  2. Awesome! We had this last week with mashed potatoes. It's always a good one!
