Great addition to my meatloaf rotation. We don’t like ketchup on meatloaf so I used tomato sauce.

This is a really tasty meatloaf. I did cut the mushrooms back to 8 oz and get the rest of the ingredients the same...I think 16 oz would be too much because the meatloaf the way I made it was a great mix of beef and hearty mushrooms. I also am not a fan of ketchup, so I put some marina sauce on top of the meatloaf midway through cooking, but didn't put any more on at the end. Very tasty and this would be great for anyone trying to cut back on red meat or get more veggies into their diet.

I scaled this back for 1 serve but used 3 ounces of lean beef mince for a very generous meatloaf and I put on half the sauce for the first 10 minutes of cooking and the second half for the last 10 minutes of cooking at 170C fan forced and I thoroughly enjoyed the rich taste the mushrooms gave to the meat, thank you breezermom made for First Time tag game at FF&FF.
