Vegetable Packed Meatloaf and Sides

Like many parents I know, I’m constantly trying to figure out a way to get more veggies into my kiddos – I like to call my mission “The Great Veggie Sneak.”  This meal was a hit.


It had all these veggies in it!  That’s celery, green pepper, onion, cauliflower, and sweet potatoes!

For the meatloaf (includes celery, green pepper, onion) I used a recipe off of (although I didn’t use low fat turkey because my kids need some cals). I love it not only because it is protein and veggies, it’s also one of those “throw them all together in a pan” recipes.  AND MY KIDS GOBBLED IT UP!!!

For the cauliflower, I used this recipe – it’s super simple, with only 2 ingredients that aren’t in most kitchens anyway.

And lastly, the sweet potato fries, which the whole crew loves…and it’s a treat I can feel good about feeding to my family.  Not counting the sweet potatoes, again, all ingredients are probably in your kitchen right now.


You’ll notice that all three of these recipes require different temperatures – I did all of them at 375 degrees, just cooked the fries and meatloaf for 40 mins and the cauliflower for 50 (so the fries a bit longer than the recipe lists, the meatloaf and cauliflower a bit shorter).

Viola!  Veggies they enjoy.  Mom gets a pat on the back 🙂
