Recipe by Queen of Flowers
Darn, I lost my healthier meatloaf recipe. I developed this recipe by browsing other online recipes and my memory of the lost recipe. Prep time is an estimate as I already had most the ingredients chopped.
- 1 1⁄2 cups onions, chopped
- 1 cup celery, chopped
- 1 cup bell pepper, any color, chopped
- 2 cups carrots, grated
- 1⁄2 cup skim milk
- 1 egg
- 2 egg whites
- 1 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
- 2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1⁄4 cups ketchup, divided
- 1 1⁄4 cups sweet barbecue sauce, divided
- 2 lbs lean ground beef
- 1 lb lean ground turkey
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
