This Claim Jumper Meatloaf tastes just like what they serve at the restaurant. Full of chopped vegetables and bursting with flavor!
This meatloaf is TASTY! I’m not even a huge fan of meatloaf, but this is DELICIOUS! The last time we went to Claim Jumper, my husband got the meatloaf and I got.. I don’t even remember.. all I remember is how good the meatloaf was! He gave me a bite or two of it and I was wishing that I had ordered it too. It had so much flavor! I knew that I needed to go home and combine some recipes to try to duplicate it. I think I got pretty dang close (in fact… I think THIS recipe is even BETTER…)! Adults love it, kids love it…. you just can’t lose.
If you are looking for some side dish ideas… this goes great with our loaded mashed potatoes and sauteed sweet asparagus. It also goes great with our Parmesan potato halves and roasted vegetable medley.
Anyway, here is our take on the Claim Jumper Meatloaf recipe (which is a combination of our family’s recipe and Todd Wilbur’s recipe)… it is actually really easy to make– you are going to love it!
- 2 tsp. vegetable oil
- 2/3 c. onion minced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 c. red bell pepper minced
- 1 carrot grated
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 c. milk
- 2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 1 Lb. ground beef
- 1 Lb. ground pork
- 1 c. breadcrumbs Italian seasoned
- 1/2 c. flour
- 1/2 c. ketchup
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Saute onion, garlic, red pepper and carrot in oil over medium heat until they become soft. In a medium-sized bowl combine eggs with milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. In a separate, large bowl, mix breadcrumbs and flour into the beef and pork with your hands.
- Add egg and milk mixture, sauteed veggies, ketchup and mix it up with your hands. Press the mixture into a meatloaf pan or a large loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes, then spread additional ketchup over the top of the loaf to taste, then bake for another hour.
- Let it sit for a few minutes, then slice and serve!
