Meatloaf with hidden Veg for pickey children

Submitted by: ABRIESAC

Introduction

We have a child who is dead set against eating anything that might look healthy. Thought we would try hiding things from him in order to see if we could finally get him to eat it.

Directions

Puree celery, rad and orange peppers, mushrooms, onion, and BBQ sauce (note: Puree is optional, we did it to make all the veg in the recipe look like barbecue sauce).

Combine puree, ground turkey, egg, and bread crumbs into a bowl and mix together.

Add the resulting mixture to a loaf pan.

Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 35 minutes.

    This looks great but could be healthier if you substituted the breadcrumbs with Wildtree Mom's Meatloaf Mix which is mostly oats. Check it out at sandypack.mywildtree.com. All natural with no preservatives, dyes, MSG. - 6/1/09

    I like to hide carrots in meatloaf. It cuts down on the meat and adds healthy veggies! If you shred them you can't even tell that they are there. - 6/1/09

    Even better if you add garlic powder and brush a little bit of BBQ sauce on top of the loaf after baking. - 5/25/09

  • I always hated the onions my mom put into the meatloaf so instead she started putting a can of vegetable soup in it and I love it. It is so easy and good! - 10/17/11
