Harvest Meat Loaf

Whole wheat couscous, extra lean ground beef and tons of healthy veggies makes this meatloaf a complete and satisfying meal! If making it with baby in mind, brush the Glaze topping on just part of the meat loaf and skip the Worcestershire sauce – serve with a splash of Worcestershire and some chutney or red pepper jelly on the side to season for adults.
