Sometimes meatloaf is disgusting. And yes, I'll admit that I've made a nasty meatloaf a time {or two} There's something about finding just the right combination of ingredients. Buuuuut here's the 'issue' I have with meatloaf, baked ground beef by itself with minimal ingredients can be a little unhealthy and bland. So imagine my excitement when I baked up my meat loaf tonight and was completly happy with the result! I got in some extra veggie and it was tasty!! I got the ideas from food network, but of course I made my alterations to said recipe and here's what I came up with....

{I feel like something catchy should be added to the title of the recipe, but I can't think of something}
1 lb of lean ground beef 
*note: use more of everything if you're feeding more than 3-4 people (duh! HA!)
1/2 cup[ish] of grated carrots
1/2 cup[ish] chopped onions
3/4 cups of bread crumbs
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp of Thyme
1 tsp of Garlic Powder
1 tsp of Onion Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste

stir this all up and pour over the meatloaf after its cooked for about 10mins. 
{to be honest I didn't measure any of these seasonings cause I never these measurements are simple guesstimates so you should alter as needed!}
Mix all ingredients up together and form into a loaf. Use your hands people it makes you feel really domestic and gooey. Bake at 325* for 45 mins to an hour 

1/2 cup ketchup
some Worcestershire Sauce {does anyone really know how to pronounce this?!!}
a dash of hot sauce {I used tapatio}
a squeeze of the honey bear

Enjoy {easy huh!?}
Delicious too!

In fact its so good I didn't get an after picture, sorry! Make it yourself and you can see the after. 


  1. That looks not so yummy! lol. But I am sure the baked product looks much better. You think it would work with ground turkey?

  2. this would totally work with ground turkey. I might add an extra egg since its so lean to keep it from falling fact I might do just this sometime!

  3. My dad used ground turkey, zucchini, onions, and some other really yummy things too! Soooooo good, and healthy!
    Sounds delish Aubrey...I'll have to try carrots next time!
