2 eggs
2/3 cup milk
3 slices bread, torn into pieces
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup grated carrot
1 cup shredded cheddar or mozzarella cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried basil, thyme or sage, optional
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 pound lean ground beef


1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon prepared mustard


In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk and bread; let stand a few minutes or until the bread absorbs the liquid. Stir in the onion, carrot, cheese, herbs and seasonings. Add beef; mix well.

In a shallow baking pan, shape beef mixture into a 7 1/2-inch x 3 1/2-inch x 2 1/2-inch loaf. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine topping ingredients. Spoon some of the topping over meat loaf. Bake for about 30 minutes longer or until no pink remains, occasionally spooning some of the remaining topping over loaf. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I was skeptical on the name because I have never been a fan for meatloaf, however my husband loves it so I gave it a try. It was a hit for the whole family including myself. We make it at least every other week. Excellent combination of flavors!! HINT: We substituted Moose burger instead of hamburger last time. MMMMM! even better!

The meatloaf was tasty, but the topping was a little sweet for my taste.
