*use finely shredded veggies to replace breadcrumbs
1 lb. ground meat (beef or buffalo)
1 ordinary sized carrot (not too big)
1 small onion (including green stalk)
spices as you wish
Grate the carrot fine, chop the onion (in a food processor or blender, if desired) and then mix everything together. Form into balls (the consistency will be wet and loose). Fry in a pan.
Note: to eliminate the breadcrumbs in meat loaf, start with your favorite meatloaf recipe, but substitute chopped cabbage. Mix spices, egg, onion, etc. into the meat first, then chop or shred the cabbage (about half a head) and mix that in, then bake.
