Meatloaf Sandwiches

I made this tasty meatloaf with ground beef and caramelized vegetables. It is another good way to get lots of veggies into your kids diet. The meatloaf is very flavorful and it's great when served with toasted baguette or rolls as a sandwich, topped off with some cheese of your choice. Yum!

Meatloaf Sandwiches


2 lbs Ground Beef
1 ½ Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Red Onion, halved and sliced
2 Carrots, peeled and sliced
2 Bell Peppers, halved and sliced
3 Cloves Garlic, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 Eggs
¼ Cup Breadcrumbs
½ tsp Chili Flakes
2 tsp Sea Salt
½ tsp Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 Cup BBQ Sauce
12 Rolls or 2 Baguette, toasted
12 Slices of Cheddar Cheese


Sauté onion, carrots, peppers, and garlic in a skillet until all the vegetables are cooked and caramelized. Let it cool slightly, and puree in a food processor or a blender.

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef; mix vegetable puree, eggs, breadcrumbs, chili flakes, sea salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning. Knead the mixture well until the entire ingredient is well blended. Transfer the beef mixture into a non-stick loaf pan and refrigerated for about 3 hours, or overnight.

When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 350˚F. Loosen the loaf with a small knife and flip it over in a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Brush the top with BBQ sauce and bake in the oven for about 1 hour. Pour off all the excess fat and let stand for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.

Makes 12 Sandwiches

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
