I adapted a meatloaf recipe to add more healthy ingredients and give it some more kick. It comes out tasty and the sauce is a great addition.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Mix together all ingredients, except the brown sugar and mustard.
  3. Pat into an oval shape and place in a 9x13 pan.
  4. Cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, mix the brown sugar and mustard together until it forms a paste.
  6. After meatloaf bakes for 50 min, remove and cover with the paste.
  7. Cook for 10 minute longer.

I enjoyed this very much. The flax seeds and oatmeal made for a very nice texture that I enjoyed because it reminded me that the meatloaf was healthy...DD hated it for the same reason! I think it just depends on how close minded the people eating it are to healthy alternative recipes. I found the seasoning to be perfect and the topping delightully different. Left out the cheese to keep the fat to a minimum but I'm sure with that addition, even DD would love it. Thanks for posting!

This is a very nice tasting meatloaf, & I especially like the use of flax seeds, horseradish & cheddar cheese. while my other half was more impressed with the mustard topping! Also, for me, it's a nice change from my own loaf with raisins, so.... I probably used more onion than was called for [a medium one], but that's no big change. Very, very nice, & definitely a recipe I want to keep on file! Many thanks!
