MushroomMeatloaf_H2It’s getting cooler in Canada and we’re ‘ KRAVING” comfort foods again and with our kids back to school it’s nice to have leftovers for a hearty lunch. This recipe makes a hearty Mushroom Meatloaf, packed with flavour and protein and finished off with a tasty mushroom sauce. Mushrooms not only pack crazy flavour, they also are great to extend the budget for your meals. Use the blend and extend technique by blending in mushrooms with your meat to take your meals that much further.

What I love about this recipe is that everything is prepared in my food processor and all I have to do is stick that in the oven for 45 mins to an hour while I go about my other chores. The addition of eggs in my meatloaf ensure that my kids are getting a protein enriched meal.
