We are definitely not shy when it comes to vegan meat – we try a lot of it! Many are misses, but there are some hits. And Impossible burger is definitely a hit. We first tried it when Red Robin started carrying it, and now we eat it at least once a week since our local Kroger started carrying it.
I have made tacos and meatballs with Impossible burger (both delicious!) but the current family favorite is Impossible meatloaf. It had been YEARS since I made meatloaf and while it was never something I craved after going vegan, my husband really missed it. He says that you cannot even tell this meatloaf is vegan, which is a total win!
(P.S. This recipe is totally not sponsored in any way, we are just obsessed with the stuff!)
While I have not tried this recipe using Beyond beef (we prefer the Beyond sausages out of their products), I believe it will work. Many readers in the comments have tried it with success.
Since Impossible has been slowly rolling out their ground beef, I recommend checking out their store locator to see if it has hit your area yet. I have found it in Kroger, Hannaford, and Price Chopper. The incredible news is that you can order it online and have it delivered right to your home!
For the list of all ingredients and amounts, see the recipe card below.
- Impossible burger: The vegan meat needed for this recipe! You can also use Beyond if that’s your preference.
- Breadcrumbs: These act as a binding agent. You can also use oats.
- Ketchup: This is usually added on top either before or after baking, but I love to add a little bit right into the meatloaf. It adds flavor and moisture. You can use tomato sauce instead.
- Vegan Worcestershire sauce: I find Worcestershire sauce is crucial for that classic Mom’s meatloaf flavor. However, typical store-bought Worcestershire sauce contains fish! Some brands are vegan, like Annie’s and the Kroger brand. You can also make a homemade vegan Worcestershire sauce. If all other options are exhausted, soy sauce is a good replacement.
- Garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, salt, and pepper: Flavor!
Is Impossible Burger Vegan?
There is some controversy around this topic. Impossible Burger does not carry the certified vegan label and you can read why here.
But in my opinion, yes – Impossible Burger is vegan. The “beef” contains NO animal products and no animal testing is actively being conducted.
Plus, Impossible Burger is by far the closest thing to real beef I’ve tried. It will allow more and more people to ditch animal meat and go with plant meat. The definition of veganism is to do the least amount of harm possible, and I believe Impossible Burger does that and inspires others to do so as well.
See the printable instructions in the recipe card below.
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, then form into a loaf and place on the baking sheet.
- Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown and no longer pink in the middle.
- Brush some ketchup or BBQ sauce on top if desired! You can also serve with sautéed green beans, vegan gravy and mashed potatoes for a delicious dinner.
Variations and Substitutions
- Gluten-free: Good news – the Impossible burger is gluten-free! To replace the breadcrumbs, use an equal amount of gluten-free oats or make your own breadcrumbs from GF bread.
- Double this recipe: Simply double all the ingredient amounts (you can do this right in the recipe card next to “servings”) and cook for an additional 10 minutes or so.
- If you cannot find or don’t have the time to make vegan Worcestershire sauce, use soy sauce instead.
Leftovers will keep in the fridge for about 3 days, stored in an airtight container.
