meatloaf football food

Now that it’s football season again in the US, here’s a fun idea for football food. Meatloaf is an easy crowd pleaser and is a perfect main dish for football fans. This is a recipe adapted from and it’s easy to make.

It has the addition of carrots to add just a little bit more of a nutritious punch. You can also shred vegetables like zucchini and add them if you’d like to.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 grated carrot
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire
  • 2 tablespoons horseradish
  • Salt and pepper

For topping and decoration:

  • Ketchup
  • Onion


Preheat oven to 350F.

In a large bowl, add ground beef, oats, carrot, onion, egg, Worcestershire, horseradish, salt and pepper. Work the ingredients with your hands until they are well combined and stick together well. On a non-stick oven safe pan, shape the loaf into a football shape. Make a well on the top of the meat where the ketchup and onion decoration will go.

Bake for about 50-60 minutes until fully cooked.

Add ketchup to fill the well you created. Top with thin slices of onion, arranged to look like the football’s laces. Serve your meatloaf football food with mashed potatoes and enjoy!
