    1. Preheat an oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease a 23x33cm baking dish.
    2. Mix the beef mince, turkey mince, zucchini, onions, green capsicum, egg, Worcestershire sauce, Cheddar cheese and bread crumbs until well combined. Form the mixture into a loaf in the middle of the prepared baking dish.
    3. Stir together the tomato sauce and steak sauce in a small bowl. Pour and spread the sauce over the top of the meatloaf. Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the centre, about 1 hour. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read at least 70 degrees C.

    I made this exactly as written. Let me start by saying I am not a meatloaf fan, but my guys requested it, and I knew I had to find something that wasn't your standard fare. This recipe is definitely a keeper with fantastic flavor, moist and plenty of leftovers. I made one big loaf and cooked for an hour and 10 minutes just to make sure it was cooked thru.  -  15 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I didn't have a packet of ranch seasoning, so I used about a cup of ranch dressing and about 1/4 cup extra bread crumbs. It tasted wonderful! I was short on time, and since this makes such a huge meat loaf I separated it into 4 small ones and cooked two of them for 35 minutes and did the other two while we ate. Me and my three young'ns ate one of them and saved one in the fridge for tomorrow. The other two are going in the freezer. Great recipe! Definitely a keeper!  -  22 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this to the T, and my husband said it was one of the best meatloaf's he has ever had. I was sure that my most picky eater wouldn't even touch it and she even asked for seconds.  -  17 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
