  • 1 1/2 pounds ground meat (beef, pork, chicken or a combo works great)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c bread crumbs (I save the crumbs from all my bags of bread in the freezer and use them in recipes that call for bread crumbs)
  • 1/2 c grated carrots, zucchini, broccoli or whatever you have on hand
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 8 oz. tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 T brown or yellow mustard
  • 1 tsp chopped herbs (thyme, sage or oregano)


  1. Mix all ingredients together and form into a loaf. 

  2. Do not overmix. 

  3. Place in a loaf pan or on a cookie sheet. 

  4. You can top with ketchup if that’s your preference. 

  5. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or cover tightly and freeze. 

  6. Make sure to label your container with meatloaf and the date. Lasts in the freezer for about 6 months. 

  7. If you bake it frozen, place on a cookie sheet or in a loaf pan and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
