Blending in mushrooms helps boost the nutrition in recipes as well as stretch the meat to save money.
Ingredients
  • 1.25 lb lean ground beef
  • 8 oz baby bella mushrooms, minced
  • ½ onion, minced
  • ½ cup carrots, grated
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp horseradish
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ cup sharp cheddar, diced
  • 4 tbsp ketchup, divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef through the cheese. Add 1 tablespoon of the ketchup and mix well.
  3. Place the meat mixture in a greased loaf pan. Spread the remaining ketchup on top of meatloaf.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until cooked through and internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
Notes
Use a food processor to finely chop the vegetables for speedier preparation. If you don't have a loaf pan, you can form into a loaf and cook on a jelly roll pan. A slow cooker could also be used for prepping early in the day and cooking on low for 6-8 hours.
