Caramelized Onion Meatloaf (Healthy and a New Spin on a Traditional Meatloaf!)

I roast carrots and cabbage “steaks,” but you could do anything you want, as all veggies pair well with this meatloaf. Another favorite is roasted brussels sprouts with walnuts!

I recommend allowing yourself about 2 hours before serving to get everything caramelized and roasted properly without rushing!

* Watch me (Youtube video) make this recipe HERE!

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 lbs ground beef (if you like more “meaty” of a meatloaf, use 2 lbs)
  • 1 sweet onion, sliced as thinly as possible
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 TBS butter or olive oil
  • 1 TBS tomato paste
  • 2 TBS Worcestershire sauce (to taste)
  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 2 tsps yellow mustard
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp all-spice seasoning or any blend of your favorites (I used Trader Joe’s 21 Seasoning Salute)
  • 1 TBS balsamic glaze
  • 1 egg (2 if you like your meatloaf to be more firm and held together)
  • 1/4 cup italian breadcrumbs

Directions:

  1. Start by caramelizing your onions. Add butter and/or oil to your pan, turn on medium-low. Add sliced onions. Add a pinch of salt, give a quick stir to coat the onions, and leave it alone for a bit. I usually take about 30-45 minutes to do this, stirring a few times to turn the onions over.
  2. Make sauce mix that will go on top of the meatloaf, as well as inside. In a bowl, mix tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, yellow mustard, pinch of salt, pinch of pepper, all-spice or seasoning blend, balsamic glaze. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, scramble your egg. Add breadcrumbs. Whisk together. Add ground beef and mix until combined by hand. Don’t overmix!
  4. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Ensure your meat is cooked in the center and let it rest for about 15 minutes.
  5. Roast whatever veggies you want on the side or serve with a salad.
  6. Enjoy!
