COOKING TIPS: For this recipe…
I used extra lean ground beef because this recipe calls for cheddar cheese. The cheese ups the fat content, which balances out the lack of fat in the extra lean ground beef. This produces a nice moist meatloaf.
No fresh garlic? Substitute 1 tsp garlic powder, adding it to the meatloaf at the same time as your salt and pepper
No Herbs de Provence? Substitute 1 tsp, basil or 1/2 tsp oregano
If you want to keep things simple, do some baked potatoes in tin foil in the oven at the same time.
Or if you prefer, you can make some mashed potatoes on the stovetop while you wait for your meatloaf and carrots to cook.
Need more greens? You can always steam, saute or boil some broccoli or green beans to add as an extra side to make this a complete nutritionally balanced meal.
