Everyone's mom seems to have a recipe for meatloaf. But when a typical serving has around 500 calories and 35 grams of fat, I decided it was time for me to come up with a healthier version of this comfort food to serve my kids. My meatloaf is so moist - and no one notices it is made from lean ground beef. And by making this substitution you save about 200 calories and 15 grams of fat. I think my mom would approve!
1. Preheat oven to 350 F 2. Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl; shape into a loaf. Place into a 9" x 5" x 3" pan. 3. Mix sauce ingredients together and set aside. 4. Bake the meat loaf for 45 minutes. Remove from oven and pour sauce evenly over the top. Return the meat loaf to the oven and continue to cook for another 30 minutes.
