Meatloaf is very much a comfort food. When my kids were growing up and it was the oldest son’s turn to cook, his go to was meatloaf because I told him you could basically put anything in it. He loved changing it up each time.
One time I wasn’t home when he was preparing his masterpiece and I came home to a VERY strong smell of vinegar… Yep, you guessed it – the only time he messed up meatloaf was the time he added vinegar to it.
Susan is here today to share her vinegar free meatloaf recipe, let’s get to it:

MEATLOAF LOADED WITH VEGGIES
1.5 lbs lowfat ground beef (93/7, if possible)
1 shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped onions
3 garlic pods, minced
1/2 cup shredded cabbage
1/2 red bell pepper
2 tablespoons milled flax seed
1/3 cup crumbled Corn Chex (optional)—eliminate for low carb
salt and pepper
1/4 cup hot BBQ sauce (optional)—find gluten-free version
Mix all the ingredients with your hands and form into a loaf.
Place on a slotted roaster so that the grease will drop through and not be absorbed back into the meatloaf. I like to line the pan with foil and make slits in it for easier clean up.
I also make my loaf flat and poke holes in the top. When I spread the BBQ sauce on top, it fills the holes and adds to the flavor.
Cook at 350 for 45 minutes.
Serve with some Franks Hot Wing Sauce….Yum!

Hi, my name is Susan and for the most part, I love cooking, watching the Food Network, reading cookbooks and, of course, eating. I am also an artist and spend time each week in my studio (bedroom) oil painting. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love.
