Delicious Meatloaf With Vegetables

My family likes spice so I add in about 2 teaspoons dried chili flakes when sauteeing the veggies, but that is optional, you can sub chili sauce for the ketchup ---if you prefer to use fresh sliced mushrooms, just saute in the skillet before the onions and other ingredients, any leftovers makes a fantastic sandwich! :)

This was the absolute best meatloaf ever!! I made this for my boyfriend and his family and they ate the whole thing and his brothers hate meatloaf! They said it was "bomb" meaning it was delicious; I myself was a little skeptical at making since I have never put anything but meat in my meatloaf; it was was sooooo delicious!!!! Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Absolutely incredible recipe! I used this recipe as a guide for my "fridge cleanout". I didn't have a few of the ingredients (carrot, green onion, parsley, ground pork) but used some other things kicking around to replace them! Threw in diced sweet potato (microwaved in advance to ensure it softened), a couple of handfuls of arugula, replaced the canned mushrooms with fresh, and used only ground beef. So good! Definitely a keeper of a recipe, and so easy to make substitutions for variety in the veggies. Thanks!

We have family members that do not eat veggies, so I put all veggies after sauteing into the blender along with the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, seasonings, and eggs. It turned out great, and everyone loved it.
