Meatloaf Update

I have started using my food processor to blend the meats together because it was seeming like I’d get a bite of beef and then later a bite of chicken and I wanted a more consistent tasting meatloaf. This has really solved my problem!

1 lb grass-fed beef (or ground pork)
1 lb ground chicken (or ground turkey)
1 egg (optional if you use a food processor to mix together, not really needed)
Dash of sea salt
2 finely chopped celery stalks
3 shredded carrots
1 zucchini shredded
1/2 chopped onion (I use a yellow or sweet onion)
1-2 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp of cumin
Few shakes of parsley flakes
Few shakes of oregano
A squirt or two of organic ketchup
A squirt of mustard

For the vegetables: carrots, zucchini, onion and even the celery you can just use your food processor to do the shredding/chopping for you to make the veggies nice and fine. This saves a little time. Shred and or cut up veggies and set aside.

Take half of each meat add to the food processor and mix together. Pull out and do the same with the second half of the remaining meats. Add the shredded vegetables, blended meat together in the food processor. I just pulsed it a few times until things were starting to look even. At that point add in all the spices, ketchup and mustard. Again pulse a few times until blended. Pull out the meat and add it to your meatloaf pan. Cook for 45-50 minutes at 350. Enjoy!

 

Other things that can be quite tasty to mix in include:
cilantro
spinach
shredded sweet potato
