Zucchini Ranch Meatloaf

Jamie Justice Yost

"This meatloaf is moist, delicious, and a great way to sneak in some vegetables to your weekday dinners. Feel free to use whatever combination of meats based on your personal tastes or what's on sale at the supermarket. This is an often-requested recipe in my house and my husband still doesn't know about the zucchini in this recipe!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Mix the ground beef, ground turkey, zucchini, onions, green bell pepper, egg, Worcestershire sauce, Cheddar cheese, bread crumbs, and ranch dressing mix until well combined. Form the mixture into a loaf in the middle of the prepared baking dish.
  3. Stir together the ketchup and steak sauce in a small bowl. Pour the sauce over the top of the meatloaf. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I won't make this again. The the flavor was ok...but the texture of the meat was weird....mushy. I made it exactly as the recipe states except for the green peppers.

I didn't have a packet of ranch seasoning, so I used about a cup of ranch dressing and about 1/4 cup extra bread crumbs. It tasted wonderful! I was short on time, and since this makes such a h...

I made this to the T, and my husband said it was one of the best meatloaf's he has ever had. I was sure that my most picky eater wouldn't even touch it and she even asked for seconds.

This is the best meatloaf I've ever made!! Left out the ranch dressing, and mixed ground turkey with Jimmy Dean sausage, don't know why but that's what I felt like. Fabulous!! Also added a dash...

I made this just using the ground turkey although, I do not recommend that as it was a little dry leaving out the beef. Either way, I decided to try this meatloaf because I love the taste of ran...

I made this pretty much as written but with just turkey instead of turkey and beef. It was great and I did not have a problem with it being dry. I used a meat thermometer and mine was done in ...

A huge hit at our house. Made this 6 days ago and my son asked me tonight when we can have it again.
