Quick and Easy Meatloaf With Baked Broccoli – Shay’s Recipe of the Week
My house loves meatloaf so much so that we have to make extras for sandwiches later. Usually my boyfriend makes it but I decided to try my hand at it this time and it actually turned out better than his. Mainly because he forgot the bread crumbs last time! This is actually a really easy recipe that I made up ahead of time and just popped in the oven the next evening. I also added my favorite side dish, baked broccoli. This was a really easy and delicious meal.
- 1-2 lbs ground beef
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 1 medium bell pepper
- 1 egg
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- salt/pepper to taste
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 c. ketchup
- 2 Tlbs. prepared mustard
- 2 Tlbs. brown sugar
- 3-4 Broccoli heads (florets only)
- spray butter/olive oil
- garlic salt
In a large bowl mix together your ground beef, egg, bread crumbs, onion, bell pepper, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin and oregano. (I actually double this recipe for leftovers)
Place in a greased 9×13 pan and pat flat. (I used a few more bread crumb sprinkles on top)
In another small bowl mix together the mustard, brown sugar and ketchup. (The brown sugar just gives this a great flavor)
You can refrigerate or go ahead an pop it in the oven at this point. Bake at 350 for 45-1 hour.
Now for the broccoli. Place your florets on a pan and spray with butter or olive oil. Sprinkle with some garlic salt and pepper. Place in oven at 350 for about 10-15 minutes. I put mine in just before I take my meatloaf out so they are ready at the same time.
