This is a great low salt recipe. It has a hearty beef flavor with a twist. This is moist yet fairly dense meatloaf which is great the next day for sandwiches.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 lbs extra lean ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 pieces bread, toasted and finely cubed (a no salt added brand)
  • 2 tablespoons minced onions
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro
  • 2 (4 g) packets sodium-free beef bouillon (herb ox)
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons hot sauce (salsa brava brand low sodium) (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 teaspoon salt substitute
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 (8 ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce (for topping)
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard (for topping)
  • 12 teaspoon salt substitute (for topping)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (for topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 deg.
  2. mix topping ingredients and set aside.
  3. Beat the eggs and place in large bowl.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  5. Form into loaf shape of your choice and place into small lightly greased pan. I just used a 4x8 pan that was about 4 inches deep. Bread pan would work fine.
  6. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minute.
  7. Remove foil and coat top with the topping mix and bake for another 15-20 minute.
  8. All that's left now is to decide what to have with it. I like baked sweet potatos or garlic mashed potatos. If you like bell peppers these can be added for a great little south western taste. Using fresh onion instead of minced will make this a bit more moist but it is a preference thing. Enjoy!
