Healthy Meatloaf???

While I am always shocked to find a healthier recipe for meatloaf I am never convinced it can truly be good for you. Especially when that recipe calls for ground beef instead of ground turkey!
But I have found one that not only tastes great it is also relatively healthy, especially when you use the correct ingredients. Which unfortunately I was unable to. I had almost all of them though!

You need - 1% milk (I had 2%), whole wheat bread (I didn't have any so I used white bread), 2 egg whites, onion (I used onion powder), garlic powder, pepper, Worschestchire sauce, ketchup, and ground beef.


First get your egg whites, milk, and bread in a large mixing bowl. Let the bread soak it all up for 5 minutes.



Then add in your spices and Worschestchire sauce.


Add the ground beef and mix well. Then shape into a loaf and drop it in a loaf pan sprayed with nonstick spray.


Pop in the oven for 35 minutes.


Then top with ketchup and put back in the oven for about 20 minutes.


And voila...you are ready to go.


This meatloaf (actual recipe is called Flavorful Meatloaf from Taste of Home's Guilt Free Cooking) was awesome! I just added some yummy green beans and some crescent rolls and dug in!


This stuff is filling to! I knew I had too much on the plate but it really was too much! I was full after just two slices of it and this isn't a thick meatloaf. it's pretty small and compact but its great! I cant' wait to try it with the whole wheat bread which will make a difference in fat and calories but probably won't taste much difference. Meat loaf lovers jump on board with this recipe.

I'm not a fan of meatloaf but that looks good! You won the giveaway on my blog! :-)

I love all your recipes.
I use extra lean ground beef. Plus I have a tray thing that fits in my loaf pan so meat doesn't sit in the drippings.

Thanks Staci!!

Thanks Tracy! I need to get the loaf pan with the tray! It'd be so much easier :-)
