Have been making this for years, one of my mother's recipes

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 1 kg beef mince
  • 1 medium brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 medium zucchini, grated
  • 1 small carrot, peeled, grated
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbs tomato paste
  • 2 tbs chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup BBQ Sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Grease a 6cm-deep, 11cm x 21cm loaf pan.
  2. Combine mince, onion, breadcrumbs, egg, garlic, zucchini, carrot, worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and parsley in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Press mixture into the prepared pan. Smooth surface.
  3. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, or until meatloaf is firm. Stand for 5 minutes. Drain away excess pan juices. Carefully turn meatloaf, top-side up, onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Brush top and sides with barbecue sauce. Bake for 15 minutes or until sauce is caramelised. Stand for 5 minutes before slicing


My mother taught me this recipe

  • I love the glaze idea, I do not make enough meatloaf


  • Meatloaf is a bit of a budget favourite and love the glaze on top.


  • The glaze on the meatloaf is a great idea,thanks!


  • I like to add cheese and then the remaining glaze for the last 15-20 minutes of cooking.

    • Yummy – sounds cheesy and good to me.


  • Oh this looks simply delish! Perfection!


  • i haven’t made a meat loaf before so i have got to try this at least once and this does look good


  • Another yummy meat loaf reciepe. Thank you

  • looks great. will try this.


  • Very similar to my meatloaf recipe, taste delicious!


  • Mum’s recipes handed down are always the best


  • looks great, must try this one


  • I love a good meatloaf recipe, especially one that you can add some extra vegies to. This sounds like it would be really full of flavour. I’d love to try it with a little chilli added to the glaze.


  • glazed meatloaves are always soooo much better


  • This sounds devine and looks very tasty thanks
