Basil Meatloaf

This is a recipe I came up with and it’s all about the Basil … yummmm!  I don’t really measure my Basil and I almost always use FRESH!  I just add it until I smell it … If you cook much, you’ll know what I mean!  The one in the photo is a half recipe since hubby was out of town I didn’t need to make a full recipe … so delicious!!!

Basil Meatloaf

2 lbs Ground Beef (I use Organic)
1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon Fresh Basil Leaves, chopped or 2 tsps Dried Basil Leaves
½ tsp Ground Mustard
¼ tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
¼ tsp Sea Salt
1 Clove Garlic, Minced or 1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
1 Egg
1 Cup Plain Dry Breadcrumbs
1 small Onion, Finely Chopped (1/4 cup)
½ cup Green Bell Pepper, Finely Chopped

Mix all ingredients and place in a greased loaf pan.  Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes at 350 degrees (uncovered).  I like to cover mine with Ketchup (Simply Heinz) for the last 10-15 mins of cooking.

*Simply Heinz Tomato Ketchup is their ketchup made the old fashioned way … the way it was meant to be made and the way I remember it as a child.  NO high fructose corn syrup or artificial anything.  This is a new product and they still make the old stuff but I prefer this even if it costs a little more!  NOPE ... NOT getting paid for this plug lol

  1. Have you ever tried Simply Organic brand ketchup? We are addicted to it! It's made with agave nectar instead of sugar. Simple ingredients also:) Only about forty cents more expensive than other brands.
