Healthy Dinners: MAYBE but Yummy!
Kids hate meatloaf. This is the general consensus of most kids I have ever known or asked. Again, I may be in the weirdo category, as will be my husband- because we were meatloaf loving kids. Yes, that's right. Even the ones that were 'weird' with 'strange' ingredients. My grandmothers bleu cheese meat loaf, ones covered in caramelized onions, the list of my meat loaf loves is endless. Nolan and I both make 'creative' meat loaves pretty often and luckily, our kids do enjoy the experiments.
But Nolan came up with a recipe that is the TRUE winner for our kiddos. It may not be exactly, the healthiest, but served with sides of roasted potato wedges and roasted broccoli, then you certainly get a punch of good for you veggies with this more indulgent meat loaf! Even the name, Barbeque Cheeseburger Meatloaf will probably appeal to the pickiest of palates.
You can find my roasted broccoli recipe in our 'German Inspired Meal' and here are the recipes for your newest meat loaf and roasted potato wedges. Enjoy and be sure to take advantage of today and the beautiful weather! Thank goodness it's Monday!
