Easy Healthy Meatloaf

This recipe is based on a meatloaf recipe from my sweet mama. She has made meatloaf the same way for years and when I officially moved out into adulthood, of course I wanted the recipe! No worries, though. No super secret family stuff here!

With a couple of substitutions and shortcuts, I have found a way to prepare this meatloaf mixture in just 5 minutes. The ingredients are completely clean and a great way to get in some protein and vegetables for the entire family!
