Hidden Veggie Meatloaf

Recipe by  

"Yummiest meatloaf I've ever tasted. It has so much flavor and stays very moist. Everyone I've served it to loves it. My kids go crazy over it and don't realize they are consuming veggies. This recipe freezes well. Whenever I take the time to do a recipe that takes time (like chopping veggies) and freezes well, I multiply the recipe, eating one for dinner that night and freezing a few more for later."

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Combine ground beef, ground turkey, egg, celery, rolled oats, skim milk, ketchup, onion, green pepper, parsley, dry mustard, salt, minced garlic, and black pepper in a bowl until thoroughly combined; mixture will be moist. Transfer mixture into a 5x9-inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the center of the meatloaf reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 1 1/2 hours. Meatloaf may still look pink inside due to ketchup.

  • Cook's Note:
  • If your children don't like to see vegetables in their meatloaf at all, use your blender and blend the veggies with the milk (I use the chopper blade in a food processor).

I'm so sorry but we didn't like this at all :( I know there are thousands of variations of meatloaf out there & everyone likes something different...this was just inedible for us. I used all ground beef cuz we don't care for ground turkey & a mix of red & green peppers instead of all green. No other changes, just didn't care for the flavor, or lack of. Just not our kind of meatloaf.

I wanted something healthy made with Turkey and don't want to use bread crumbs. This is perfect. My 1 year old son LOVEs LOVEs it. So does my husband.

My family loved this! I used pureed spinach and skipped the peppers. Was great!

This was great. I doubled the veggies and used 2 pounds extra lean ground beef. I also doubled the oats and used an extra egg. It was enough to make 2 large loaves. It could have used a little more ketchup. It did fall apart a little, so I think next time I'll use another egg.

I left out the green peppers, used all turkey meat and replace the parsley with sage, then baked in muffin papers for 25 minutes. Delicious!
