I was never much of a meatloaf lover as a child... then my mom found a recipe that changed my mind. It was the best meatloaf I had ever tasted and I married a man who loved it as well. Then we started eating in a simpler way and that recipe had to say goodbye.
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup salsa
1 slice Ezekiel bread
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
optional pinch of garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, and rosemary for garnish
Coconut (or olive) oil
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease cooking dish with either coconut or olive oil. This step isn't absolutely nessecary, but it makes cleaning the dish SO much easier later!
Place raw ground beef, egg, salsa, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder into a mixing bowl. Toast slice of Ezekiel bread and then crumble it into the bowl as well. Mix well (I use my hands!).
Place mixture in cooking dish and form into a "loaf". Garnish with extra garlic powder and onion powder, then also a little bit of parlsey and rosemary.
Place in oven for 50-60 minutes (cooking time will slightly change depending on how thick you make your loaf).
