Not ya mama's meatloaf for sure! Carrots, mushrooms, celery, garlic and onion all hidden away in a breadcrumb mixture that binds this bad boy together. With the help of some other ingredients. All three kids had no clue there was any veggies in this. One only eats raw veggies, one eats none and the other hates mushrooms. Hehe, I got them to eat their veggies!!!
1 cup mushrooms chopped
1 cup carrots chopped
1/2 cup celery chopped
1 large onion chopped
4 cloves garlic chopped
1 tbs olive oil
2 tbs butter
1/2 cup white wine or beef stock
1/4 cup milk
1 cup italian flavored bread crumbs
3 pounds of ground beef
1/2 cup brown sugar
Spray a broiling pan with some non-stick cooking spray. Next, using your hands, form your meat mixture into a loaf on the sheet pan. Make the loaf around 6-8 inches wide and about 1 ½ inches thick.
In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix together 1 cup of ketchup with 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce. Slather this sauce over the whole meatloaf.
