Inspired by the nicely spiced lamb meatballs at Alta, I decided to make Moroccan Spiced Meatloaf. Lon happens to love meatloaf and the last time I made it, he raved. I love when he loves my food so I thought this would be a good shot and I think this one beat the last one!

Moroccan Spiced Meatloaf

Moroccan Spiced Meatloaf

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large shallot, chopped
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1 (15oz) can tomato sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 rounded teaspoon Morrocan spice blend
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

1. Spray a 9×5 loaf pan with non-stick and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Combine beef, onion, shallots, egg, bread crumbs, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, and 2 tablespoons Morrocan spice mixture. Mix thoroughly.
3. Press into loaf pan and make an indent down the center.
4. Mix the remaining tomato sauce with brown sugar and rounded teaspoon of Morrocan spice mixture. Pour on top of the meatloaf.
5. Bake at 375 degrees F for approximately 55 minutes or until thermometer reads 160 degrees F. Let it rest for 5 minutes before serving.

The Moroccan Spiced Meatloaf was too easy to make for something this good. It was so moist and flavorful and both of us had large seconds. I only had beef on hand but using some turkey could cut out a lot of fat. Enjoy!
