Fully Loaded Meatloaf

Serving Size: 8

I thought instead of infusing the meat with the veggies I usually use, I’d explore using peppers, cauliflower, broccoli and leeks that are roasted, then chopped and spread on a rolled out version of meatloaf. With the ham and two different kind of cheeses this made it for a tasty dish. Served with salad and rice it was a filling meal.
