Pumpkin Meat Loaf





Introduction: Pumpkin Meat Loaf

About: I am married with two children. Spring, summer, and fall are my very favorite times of the year. I enjoy working in the yard, sewing, cooking, quilting, gardening, and creating. I do this to keep my sanity.
This instructable was inspired by the instructable's  pumpkin contest. I modified our family's favorite meatloaf recipe and The Pumpkin Meat Loaf was created! Now we have two favorite meatloaf recipes. Follow through and let's make some meatloaf!

Step 1: Ingredients


1 1/2 pounds Hamburger
1 Cup Corn flakes (you can substitute bread crumbs if you like)
1 Cup Libby's Pumpkin Pie mix 
1 Beaten egg
1 Cup diced onion
1 Cup diced celery
1/2 Cup carrots
1/2 Cup grated Parmesan cheese
French's Classic yellow mustard optional

Bowls, loaf pan, large spoon, and measuring cups.


Step 2: Combine Ingredients

Pre-heat oven 350 degrees F and Combine ingredients:

Hamburger, egg, onion, celery, Parmesan cheese, Carrots, pumpkin, and Corn flakes.
Mix thoroughly.
Lightly oil the loaf pan.


Step 3: Shape Loaf

Shape the ball into the loaf pan.


Step 4: Bake and Serve

Bake in the oven for one hour, ( We like it well done).
Add mustard if desired.

Step 5: Sunshiine's Final Thoughts

My family really enjoyed this recipe and we all agreed that the mustard set it off! 

I wish to thank everyone for stopping by and have a great fall!

    I tried a variation of this: left the meat out, added rice, added chopped almonds, and cayenne. Thanks for sharing. I also voted for you.

    Thanks so much for commenting and I am glad you liked it. I will try the rice method sometime! Hope your day shines!

    Made this for dinner with friends and it was a TOTAL hit, even with kids! Unbelievably yummy and moist. Try it - you'll be keeping this one in your rotation for sure!
