This dish is extremely satisfying and so easy to make. You would never know from tasting this meatloaf that it is stuffed full with vegetables! I make it for my family, especially when we have a busy day and night ahead of us, because the prep time is small, you can stick it in the oven whenever you're ready. As my husband put it, "meatloaf leftovers make the best sandwiches the next day!" Imagine his surprise when there were no leftovers the next day because everybody at the table got seconds and thirds! Try it, I promise your kids will like it.
These are always well-loved. They are time-consuming and the recipe below makes enough to eat for a large crowd or two meals with some leftover to freeze. I only make them once a year, almost always during Christmas break, when we are making fresh sausage, cabbage is plentiful and the weather is cold and dreary.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
The Best Meatloaf Ever, I Promise
