Scot Hibb's Killer Culinary Meal Loaf

"This meat loaf is so moist and full of flavor; you won't want to even call it meat loaf. I had this idea one day when I didn't want to add bread crumbs. Anyway, if you make this you won't be sorry. It's got tons of veggies, but the kids will never know it. It's so juicy, and you can add so many different things to make it more interesting. Add two cups bread crumbs and a cup of BBQ sauce for another tasty variation. I've also added shredded Cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese to the meat to make it like a cheeseburger! I've also just made this with onions, carrots, and A-1 sauce (that's the way I like it best)."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees C (165 degrees C).
  2. Place carrots, potato, celery, pepper, and garlic into a food processor, and puree to a wet paste. Add eggs, mustard, and tomato paste, and process for another few seconds.
  3. Place the ground beef in a large mixing bowl, and add pureed vegetable mixture, thyme, basil, rosemary, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper. Knead together until thoroughly mixed. Form into two loaves, and place in a 9x13 inch baking dish.

This was terrible. I wasted 2 lbs. gr. sirloin, plus all of the labor. Since veggies come in all sizes, maybe if measurements were used it might have come out better. It was so soupy I added the...

I loved it! I halved the recipe because I only had one pound of ground beef. I, too, thought it seemed too moist before I baked it, so I added about a cup of breadcrumbs before baking. Deee-l...

I make a similar meatloaf frequently, using a one-pound bag of mixed vegetables, thawed and pureed in my food processor, with two eggs. It's actually a really great way to sneak in some extra ve...

This recipe is too mushy! I think the veggies should be a little less, especially the potato, it makes the meatloaf taste really starchy. Also I tried one fresh jalapeno instead of the cayenne...

I really like this recipe because of all the veggies in it. I wanted a meat loaf that wasn't all meat. I like that there are carrots, potatoes, and celery in it. I also added some broccoli an...

I used ground turkey, so it may have altered the final result. The two flavors most prominent were carrot and rosemary. Suggest leaving out the rosemary if you’re not a fan of it. I did top i...

I made this with all the veggies and no bread crumbs. Very tasty and oh so healthy. The texture was perfect for eating hot or slicing cold. Hold back some of the cayenne if you are feeding youn...

This was a great compromise for hubby and me. He loves meat loaf, I like the vegetables. I took the recipe authors suggestion and used carrots, onions, peppers but no potatoes....and A-1 sauce...
