Baked meatloaf! with potatoes and carrots.

All in one meal.  Baked meatloaf with white potatoes and carrots.

I love all in one meals.  Whether it is crock pot handy or in the oven the thought of putting several good ingredients in a pan or pot and coming out with a delicious, easy to do meal ranks top on my list of happy moments.  Call me crazy but finding meals to not only be healthy but also satisfying is not always easy and when you can put them all in one pan or pot I am one happy chick.  LOL  

This one was delicious.  We had leftovers so hubby had some the next day and me too!  Afterall meatloaf is healthy and this recipe had little bread crumbs so it was low in the carb area. The amount of ketscup was minimal so it was a good healthy choice in my book.  Enjoy and feel free to add anything else you'd like to this meatloaf.  I did not add the Worcestershire sauce(not a fav of mine).  And notice no eggs in this meatloaf and it held together perfectly.  YUM

  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup milk (use low fat is you want)
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup crushed saltines or panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 small onion grated 
  •  1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce(optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (chicken or turkey if you desire)
  • 2 small onions, quartered
  • 4 small potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 4 medium carrots, quartered
  • 1 large green pepper, cut into quarters(optional)
  • parsley for garnish

  1. In a large bowl, combine milk, ketchup, cracker crumbs, Worcestershire sauce optional , salt and pepper. Add ground beef. Shape meat mixture into an 8-in. x 4-in. oval; place in a lightly greased baking pan. Place the onions, potatoes, carrots and optional green pepper around the loaf .
  2. Cover and bake at 350° for 1-1/4 hours depending on your oven. Uncover; bake 15 minutes longer or until there is no longer any pink in the center and potatoes and carrots are fork tender.  Note: mine took a little longer than time  suggested.  I used beef and pork in my adapted recipe.
