Freezer Meal Swap - Zucchini Ranch Meatloaf

Tuesday night I had my monthly meal swap. I made Zucchini Meatloaf based on a recipe I found at I had major Zucchini and major ground beef so it seemed like a good choice. Bonus that I got to use up lots of breadcrumbs that have been taking up freezer space.

Here is a photo of all the ingredients and DD#1 in her favorite pose. I actually had to buy the onions, but otherwise had the ingredients on hand.

Ingredient list:
2 pounds ground beef
3/4 cup shredded zucchini
3/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced carrot
1 egg
1 t. worcestershire sauce
1 c. cheddar
1 & 1/2 c. bread crumbs
1 c. ranch dressing
1/4 c. ketchup
1/4 c. bbq sauce

I tripled this and made 5 meatloafs. The comments on the recipe indicated this was a huge recipe and could be split in two.

First I combined all the ingredients excepting the ketchup and bbq sauce

Then I split it into 5 equal portions and put one into a pan for my family's dinner.

Then I combined the ketchup & bbq sauce, again dividing it into 5 parts.
I put one portion on our loaf and popped it into the oven for an hour.

I forgot to take a photo when it came out, but my husband and kids ate it right up so I guess it was alright.

I would have made more, but I only had 3 eggs and I only had 3 cups of cheddar. With the grocery shopping dearth I resigned myself to just tripling the recipe.
