Suzanne’s Moist and Tasty Meatloaf

Thanks to all of you who took the February 28 Yoga Challenge. We have another 28 Day Yoga Challenge coming up and starting on April 1st – no kidding! I will be giving more guidance and adding more videos, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy this recipe.

Don’t like meatloaf because it’s too dry and bland? Try my recipe and you’ll be going back for seconds or thirds.


1 pound ground beef

1 pound ground chicken or turkey

2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

2 shallots, minced

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 egg, lightly beaten (room temperature)

3/4 c. marinara sauce

1/2 c. panko or bread crumbs

1 1/2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce

1/4 – 1/2 cup of chopped parsley

1 – 2 tablespoons of flax seed (optional)


1/3 c. ketchup


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients except ketchup together with your hands. Place in a baking dish and shape into a loaf. Spread ketchup on top. Bake for about an hour. Use a meat thermometer to make sure meat is fully cooked.

TIP: Place a small oven-proof container with water in the oven when you cook the meatloaf. The moisture keeps the meatloaf moist.
