Thirty Minute Meatloaf

By: Catherine Slezinger

When I first started cooking from scratch, I didn’t have kids.  I would spend an hour and a half almost every night cooking foods for my husband and me, and then cleaning up.  The thought of doing that literally cracks me up now! I can’t believe I ever had that much time!

Once kids entered the picture, I quickly realized that I had to make some changes if we were going to continue eating Maker’s Diet foods from scratch 3-5 x a day. 

Since necessity is the mother of invention, I’ve developed a whole bunch of recipes that are easy to make, in 30 minutes or less, without compromising on quality whatsoever.  When I can have hubby watch the kids, I enjoy cooking for longer periods of time, but most nights, the 30 minute rule applies around our house!

Here’s one of our family’s favorite recipes- meat loaf, made with high quality organic, grass fed beef. 

I think meatloaf is the ultimate comfort dish, and this dish tastes delicious served with warm mashed potatoes or even brown rice.  Made using organic, grass fed & grass finished beef, this dish is high in cancer preventing, heart healthy, and body slimming CLA!

Let me know if you try it, and what you think!!!
