  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1/4 cup carrot, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup ketchup

  • 1 tsp chili powder, optional


  • Smothered in a flavorful sauce, our velvety Rice and Veggie Meatloaf delivers a perfect punch of juicy flavors. This tasty meatloaf — stuffed with White Rice — has the ideal texture you’ve been searching for!

    Step 1

  • Prepare rice according to package directions. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 9×5-inch loaf pan* with nonstick cooking spray.

    Step 2

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

    Step 3

  • In a small bowl stir together ketchup, brown sugar and chili powder, if desired. Spread mixture over meatloaf. Cover with foil and bake 45 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165˚F.

    Recipe Tips

    Substitute 1/2 pound ground beef and 1/2 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.

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

When wrapped up tightly or in an airtight container, meatloaf will keep for 3 or 4 days in the fridge. Of course, if you opt for freezing, you can save your meal for at least 1 month! Read up on these Do’s and Don’ts For Freezing Food to get the tastiest results!
