If you asked me what my favorite dish from childhood was I would say, “meatloaf.” There’s nothing better than warm meatloaf beside mashed potatoes and peas. While I’m sure that my mom’s meatloaf was not particularly healthy, I’ve tried to recreate it in a more healthier way. These days, I pair it with peas and occasionally some mashed cauliflower.
1 lb grass-fed ground beef
1 cup whole oats
1/2 cup organic ketchup
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon each salt, pepper, thyme, basil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl with both hand…get dirty! Form into a loaf shape and place in greased loaf pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Top with ketchup and enjoy!
