    Step 2

  • In a large bowl combine rice, ground beef, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and eggs. Do not overmix. Press mixture into prepared pan.

    Recipe Tips

    Substitute ½ pound ground beef and ½ pound ground pork or bulk Italian sausage.

    *No loaf pan? Form the meatloaf by hand and bake on parchment or foil lined baking pan or dish. Alternatively, portion into muffin tins and reduce bake time to 25 minutes. Individual meatloaf muffins freeze well.

Meatloaf 101

Meatloaf is an all-American dinner, using pantry staples. We have our traditional Successful Meatloaf, but just because it’s comfort food, doesn’t mean you can’t get creative! Just as long as you follow the basic formula: meat, veggies, binder, seasoning, and sauce.

Meat: If you want an even juicier meatloaf, add some extra fat. Opt for high-fat ground beef or fold in some tasty bacon. If you’re craving a homestyle meatloaf but are trying to maintain a Plant-Based diet, you’re in luck — this hearty Vegan Brown Rice BBQ Meatloaf skips the meat but is still a satisfying nostalgic treat!

Binder: You want a natural binder that gives your loaf structure, texture, and flavor. Often eggs and oats, we’re using rice to keep everything together while absorbing all those rich flavors. In fact, our Success Garden & Grains™ rice blend is also packed with veggies to keep the loaf light and add a bit more veggies in each bite! That’s right — get a satisfying medley of White Rice, Peas, Carrot & Red Bell Peppers without even having to break out the measuring cups.

Seasoning & Sauce: Just as you would with grilled or seared cuts, let the meatloaf sit for 10 minutes before digging in to keep that loaf as moist as possible! Then, serve your meatloaf with a drizzle of those precious juices from the pan on top of your slices.

Meatloaf Meal Prep
