Zucchini Ranch Meatloaf:

We have an TON of zucchini in our garden right now, so I'm looking everywhere for ANY zucchini recipe I can find!! I made this for dinner the other night and it turned out really well!! Me and my mom are still the only ones that even know there was zucchini in it! You couldn't tell at just just gave it this really nice flavor and kept it really moist. So, if you have a picky veggie eater in your household, this would be a great way to get a fabulous vegetable into their diet! I hope you give it a try! It's super easy!

Zucchini Meat Loaf

1 lb. ground beef (you could also use half ground turkey/half ground beef)
1/3 cup shredded zucchini
1/4 cup onions, diced
1/4 cup green bell pepper, diced
1 egg
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup crushed cornflakes
1-1/2 tblsp. dry ranch powder
2 tblsp. ketchup
2 tblsp. steak sauce (check the label!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the beef, zucchini, onions, peppers, egg, Worcestershire sauce, cheese, cornflakes and ranch powder until well combined. Press evenly into a greased casserole dish or pie plate. Combine ketchup and steak sauce. Spread evenly over meatloaf. Bake 1 hour or until center is no longer pink. Serve!
