I'm always trying to find a way to add extra vegetables to my families diet for a healthier bite, even if I'm serving meatloaf.

Excellent meatloaf! I made a couple small changes and one addition - left out the celery and because my bread slices were pretty big, I only used two; also added a barbecue sauce glaze to the top before baking. Instead of a cookie sheet, I used a 13x9 glass baking dish. This was great with mashed potatoes and couscous but will also make excellent meatloaf sandwiches later! Thanks for sharing! [Editing to add: The photo looks a little pink, but it was definitely cooked through, according to the thermometer :) ]
