Half the fat is cut by using extra lean ground beef and egg whites instead of whole eggs. Onions are cooked in Zesty Italian dressing to give it a little zip, and Stove Top Stuffing Mix makes it moist. Recipe from Kraft.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup finely chopped onion (about 1 large)
  • 14 cup zesty reduced-fat Italian salad dressing
  • 2 lbs extra lean ground beef
  • 34 cup ketchup, divided
  • 1 (6 ounce) package seasoned stuffing mix (Stove Top for chicken)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 12 cup reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cook onions in dressing in large skillet on medium heat 8-10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  3. Combine meat, 1/4 cup of the ketchup, the stuffing mix, water, egg whites and onions; mix well.
  4. Place meat mixture in 13x9-inch baking dish; shape into 10x5-inch oval loaf.
  5. Spread with remaining 1/2 cup ketchup.
  6. Bake 55 minutes to 1 hour or until cooked through.
