(From Jon & Kate plus 8, I saw them do this recipe on Good Morning America or something, I found it appealing because of all the vegetables she hid in the loaves. I made this last night, we had some friends over and we all gobbled it up! If you don't have a food processor you can use a different cool chopping device, or just a knife. :)
Makes 10 slices
2 pounds organic ground beef
Finely chopped (I use food processor on pulse) celery, onion, green pepper, carrots- about 3/4-1 cup of each.
About 1½-2 cups of breadcrumbs- Italian seasoned if on hand. Otherwise, plain works too. May need more breadcrumbs depending on the consistency of the meatloaf.
About 3/4 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese (which ever is on hand).
About ¼ to ½ cup ketchup.
About 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning
About 1 teaspoon of garlic salt
Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and divide equally into two separate meat loaves. Add a squirt of ketchup to the top of each in a zig-zaggy design. I cover with foil and bake in either a meatloaf pan or a bread baking dish at 350 degrees for about an hour (depending on oven) or until bubbly and center is no longer pink.During the last 15 minutes or so, I remove foil covering and finish baking uncovered. Serve with ketchup, yum!
