MJ Monday-Meals: Meatloaf and Roasted Butternut Squash

One of my favorite wintertime meals is meatloaf with roasted butternut squash. I’m very lucky in that my supermarket sells cut and peeled butternut squash. If they didn’t I’d probably never eat it.

Preheat oven to 375F

Add a package of the precut squash to a baking dish, along with a chopped red onion. Drizzle with seasoned basting oil (another goody from my supermarket).

Place the squash in the oven and begin assembling the meatloaf.

I have many meatloaf recipes. Lately, this is my go-to:

  • 1.5 pounds ground beef
  • 1 slice whole grain bread
  • minced garlic to taste
  • 1/4 cup Egg Beaters
  • 1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup Mix.

Mix well and pat into loaf pan.

Place meatloaf in oven next to squash. Set a timer for 40 minutes.

It’s dinner!
