Thanks to Kate Gosselin of the famous reality show "Jon and Kate Plus 8" on TLC, dinner is made easy with this simple meatloaf recipe. It's perfect for a sit-down meal with your family and friends. Or take it on the go the next day and make a tasty meatloaf sandwich for lunch. Either way, this recipe is sure to please your taste buds and your wallet.

This recipe makes 10 servings.


  • 2 pounds organic ground beef
  • 2 to 3 eggs
  • 3/4 to 1 cup celery, finely chopped, I use food processor on pulse
  • 3/4 to 1 cup onion, finely chopped, I use food processor on pulse
  • 3/4 to 1 cup green pepper, finely chopped, I use food processor on pulse
  • 3/4 to 1 cup carrots, finely chopped, I use food processor on pulse
  • About 1 1/2 to 2 cups breadcrumbs (Italian seasoned if on hand. Otherwise, plain works too), may need more breadcrumbs depending on the consistency of the meatloaf
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese (shredded or grated)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup ketchup.
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Cooking Directions

    Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and divide equally into two separate meat loaves. Add a squirt of ketchup to the top of each in a zig-zaggy design. I cover with foil and bake in either a meatloaf pan or a glass bread baking dish at 350 degrees for about an hour (depending on oven) or until bubbly and center is no longer pink.

    During the last 15 minutes or so, I remove foil covering and finish baking uncovered.

    When there's leftovers (usually I have about half a loaf left over) I put a slice between wholegrain bread with some mayo and ketchup swirled together (a la French dressing!), and a slice of lettuce and tomato too for a delicious meatloaf sandwich for the next day!
