Krispy Kreme Meatloaf

Yes, you read the name of this recipe correctly. This is a Krispy Kreme Meatloaf and believe it or not, it's very good. I wouldn't make a habit of using a donut instead of breadcrumbs or oats this but it's a fun recipe every now and again that will surprise people! My husband is a huge Krispy Kreme fan and he just loves his Krispy Kreme donuts. He had seen several recipes on the internet using the donuts and wanted to give this one a try. I had my doubts, believe me! We've made a Krispy Kreme milkshake too and I'll be posting that soon. Would I make this again - maybe. Only maybe because I have a hard time wanting to eat a meatloaf that has donut stuffing. I'd rather just plain enjoy the donut itself! Besides, I like mine with sprinkles! If you want to try this out of curiousity by all means do. It tastes just fine. You can definitely surprise your family halfway through the meal by telling them they are also enjoying a donut in their meatloaf!

The meatloaf recipe I used is by Paula Deen. What I changed was using a donut for the filling instead of quick oats.

1 lb ground beef

1 1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped bell pepper

1 large egg, lightly beaten

8 oz can diced tomatoes with juice

1 1/2 Krispy Kreme glazed donut cut lengthwise in half and then diced into small pieces


1/2 cup ketchup

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp mustard

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine meat loaf ingredients and mix well. Transfer to a baking dish and shape into a loaf.

In a small bowl, mix topping ingredients and spread on loaf. Bake 1 hour, or until cooked through. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

LOL I made the Krispy Kreme Milkshake last year, wow is it good! I just might have to give this a try, we are lucky to have a Krispy somewhat nearby!

Seriously? Instead of bread pieces, you have a sugar coated donut. Wow. If you think about it, the texture of a donut is bread-like, and the sugar helps cut the acidic level of the tomatoes. It'sust the idea but, the chemistry makes sense.

very cool.
