I really wanted to like this recipe because I love Chef John's Green Bean Casserole and Pot Roast but it may be the most disappointing meatloaf I've ever eaten. Here is my list of complaints: #1. the flavor of the vegetables is unappealingly prominent, probably would be better to saute the vegetable first to mellow the flavors before processing #2. the flavor of the dried thyme in the Italian seasoning does not go well with the meatloaf, #3. 2 T. of dijon mustard in the glaze was overpowering, using 1-2 t. would have been better or substituting regular mustard instead of dijon and #4. the cooking time was way off. When I checked the internal temperature after 45 minutes, it registered at 116 degrees. After I turned the oven up to 350 degrees it still took another 35-40 minutes to reach 160 and by then the mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli were cold. The end result was a dry, dense unappetizing meatloaf. Sorry, but this did not work out for us.
