I love making meatloaf because you can add so many different vegetables in it. It’s not the traditional boring lump of dense beef that most people think of.
1 lb ground beef (80/20)
1 egg1/3 cup of Italian breadcrumbs (add more if mixture is too wet)
3 Tbsp hot salsa
½ small onion, grated
1 carrot, grated
1 small zucchini, grated1 large jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
Few dashes or Worchester sauce
2 Tbsp freshly minced parsley
Freshly cracked black pepper
2 tsp salt
1 tomato, sliced
Preheat oven to 365 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients except tomato slices; mix well, until all ingredients are combined. In a circular pan, create a meatloaf ring with a hole in the middle. Top with tomato slices. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 40 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. For the last couple minutes, uncover and place under broiler to brown tomatoes a little.
Serve with potatoes, rice or steamed vegetables.
