A tale of two meatloaves

I bought ground beef in bulk and decided to make up two meatloaves and freeze one. I made them at the same time so I used the same base ingredients for the meat and then changed up the seasoning for each. The base recipe included ground beef, 2 shredded zucchini, 2 shredded carrots, and 1/2 C breadcrumbs.

For the BBQ Meatloaf, I added 2T BBQ Seasoning* and 1/3 C BBQ Sauce. For the Italian Meatloaf, I added 2 T Italian Seasoning* and 1/3 C Marinara Sauce.

Mold into a loaf shape and freeze one for later. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 375 F. Top the Italian Meatloaf with 2/3 C Marinara Sauce and top the BBQ Meatloaf with 2/3 C BBQ Sauce. Cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Serve with Garlic Mashed potatoes and peas and carrots.

Leftover meatloaf makes delicious sandwiches!

*I use Tastefully Simple Seasonings

  1. Do you ever use oatmeal instead of breadcrumbs? I am curious if cooking times would be different...Also, do you ever use different veggies in the meat loaf?
