Homemade meat loaf with vegetables

Recipe Ingredients for Meat Loaf (healthier version)

1 lb ground beef, extra lean
1 lb ground turkey
1/4 cup egg substitute
1/3 cup bread crumbs, plain
1 yellow bell pepper, raw, diced
1 small sweet onion, raw, chopped
1/2 cup carrots, diced
1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp black pepper, course
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tbsp sea salt
1 tbsp mustard, spicy brown
2 tbsp honey
6 oz tomato paste

Recipe Directions for Meat Loaf (healthier version)

  1. Mix all ingredients together except the tomato paste, mustard and honey. I used extra lean ground sirloin in this recipe (97/3).

  2. Place in a loaf pan & let set in fridge for at least 1 hour. Use spatula to loosen edges & turn upside down onto a cookie sheet to bake. This will drain all of the excess grease out.

  3. Mix together the other ingredients for your topping. Place in fridge when you do the loaf mixture to let the flavors mix.

  4. Spread sauce on top just before baking.

  5. Bake in a 350 oven for 1 hr.
