In this blog, I wanted to share a recipe for some spiral meatloaf. It is pretty easy to make and includes some healthy vegetables. Give it a try if you like.
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced green pepper (You can also use another variety such as yellow, red)
1 can 2.25 oz. black olives
1/2 tsp. garlic
1 tsp. oil
1/3 cup spaghetti sauce or BBQ sauce
1/3 cup bread crumbs
1/2 to 3/4 tsp. garlic salt
1 pd lean ground beef
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese or other variety
2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Saute onion, pepper, garlic and black olives in oil over medium heat. Set aside. In a bowl, combine the bread crumbs, egg, 2 tbsp. spaghetti sauce, salt, and blend together. Add the beef and mix with your hands. On waxed paper, shape the meat into a 12″ x 8″ rectangle. Sprinkle the cooked veggies over the meat.
Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Roll up tightly in a jelly-roll fashion. Pinch the ends together and seal. Place in a baking dish.
Bake for 1 hour. Spread the remaining sauce over the top and bake another 10 minutes.
Note: Feel free to add in other vegetables including a handful or two of spinach or kale, jalapeno peppers, mushrooms, etc.
