This is an easy and flavorful meatloaf recipe that is comfort food at its finest. It’s so tasty – There’s no need to add gravy or douse with ketchup or other sauces. And the best part is – You get two meals for the effort of one! Make one today and freeze one for later!
Spinach, Mushroom & Onion Meatloaf
(Makes approximately two 1-lb. loaves or one 2-lb. loaf.)
2 lbs. ground meat (I use 1 lb. ground chuck and 1 lb. ground pork)
10 ounces frozen, chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/3 c. onion, finely diced
1 c. mushrooms, finely diced
2/3 c. carrots, shredded
2 jumbo eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 c. almond flour (see notes)
1-2 T. house seasoning (see below)
Thaw spinach and squeeze out excess water. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients well. Take care to not overwork mix.
You can make one 2-lb. loaf or two 1-lb. loaves. I like to prep two loaves to freeze. For this, place plastic wrap in two 1-qt. baking pans/casserole dishes and divide the mixture evenly. Place the loaves in the freezer and freeze for 1 to 2 hours. Remove from freezer and remove from pans. Wrap in aluminum foil, freezer wrap, or place in freezer bags. Label and return to freezer. To prepare, remove one meatloaf from freezer and allow to thaw in refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake 40 minutes or until meat thermometer reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes.
NOTES: I make my own almond flour by processing whole almonds in the food processor until it resembles slightly coarse flour.
You can also use ground chicken or ground turkey in this recipe. Adjust cook time for leaner meats. This meat mixture also makes tasty meatballs.
You can use an all-purpose seasoning blend of your choice but I highly recommend my flavorful blend.
