This recipe comes from a 5 Ingredient 15 Minute Weight Watchers book from about six years ago. It is so easy and so yummy! It is my boyfriend's absolute favorite. It serves four and has four points each.
I am able to have my favorite comfort food and have it fit into my eating program. This is so easy to prepare. And with the crockpot, it is all the more comforting to come home to this cooking. I have only cooked this with ground turkey, but I'm sure you could use ground sirloin. This is another recipe from Joanna Lund. I don't know the calories right now, I'm using my hand written copy. Each serving is only 2 Protein, 1/2 Vegetable and 1/2 Starch diabetic exchanges. Posted for my friends at WLB2006.
I combined my favorite ideas from several Zaar turkey meatloaf recipes and came up with a winner that's moist and flavorful (my husband told me I had to write this one down). The optional gravy is based on recipe #90731.
This meatloaf has so many goodies in it I just call it health loaf! Everyone that has ever tried it loves it, and they are shocked when I tell them how many superfoods are hidden inside. I like to use venison, and I grind several pounds at once and divide it into loaves and freeze it. An alternative might be to use a food processor for the nuts and vegetables, then mix as you normally would. Then on meatloaf night, I thaw one out and throw it in the oven. These amounts are an estimate, I try to gauge how well the ground meat will stay together. Add an extra egg or a little extra oatmeal if you feel it's necessary. Other additions I'm considering: tofu, black beans.
I love meatloaf, and tend to make large ones to ensure that there will be leftovers (nothing is better the next day than a cold meatloaf sandwich!). But sometimes I end up with half of a 3-pound meatloaf and nobody wants sandwiches, so here's what I make to use it in a tasty, fast, and easy way... Note: there is no salt added to the recipe because the salt that's contained in the tortilla chips and meatloaf, but you'll need to judge that for yourself; this one can easily get too salty if you're not careful. :)
This is a very flavorful meatloaf that qualifies as a core recipe for Weight Watchers. I love onions, so there are lots, but obviously you can adjust the onions and the spices to taste. I rarely measure spices unless following a recipe, so all measurements for spices are approximate. Also, I almost always use ground turkey, but this could be made with ground beef. There are a lot of steps here, but none of them are very hard and can be done quite quickly. Don't be afraid of using oats. Once cooked, you cannot tell the oats are there.
Yeah, I know...there's tons of meatloaf recipes out there, but I bet this is one of the easiest ones with lots of taste out there! I got this from a Kraft recipe booklet I got in the mail that I've tweaked a bit and it's pretty simple yet yummy.
Hubby and I have an ongoing feud over meatloaf - my saucy version vs. his Italian version. Since meatloaf is one of the few entrees he knows how to make, I don't complain when he makes his...but I definitely prefer this one!
This is quick, simple, & tasty. Perfect for a work night when time & energy are in short supply. The cottage cheese makes the meatloaf moist & adds nutrition. (BTW... adding a cup of cottage cheese to a lb of hamburg makes for yummy hamburgers!)
I love a good meatloaf. What Redneck doesn't? The key to a good meatloaf, though is to get the right seasonings, the quality of the meat, and the right binding. Some put vegetables like carrots or other stuff in their meatloaf to trick their kids into eating healthier. A Redneck kid can sniff a veggie out from forty paces and will refuse to eat it. This does not apply to the mixed peas and mashed potatoes thing. This is a favorite recipe of mine. Haven't got a clue where it came from, nor does it matter. It satisfies this Redneck's palate. Give it a try.
