Recipe by ThatCaptJim
Adapted from DDW's recipe to be lower in fat! Still as tasty, but a little less heavy on the ole waistline. Freezes well. Make a bunch, and freeze them for quick and easy nukeable meals!

I feel beginner cooks might encounter problems with the recipe as written. I used 1 pound of meat & feel it made 4 average size servings rather than 8. The mixture held together well & patted easily into oval minis. The recipe however mentions topping with a sauce, but none is included here. (I used a mixture of catsup, brown sugar, and mustard and baked it on the loaves the last 10 minutes in the oven to get a nice glaze.) Thank you for sharing the recipe & I look forward to more from your kitchen!
- 1⁄4 cup egg substitute
- 3⁄4 cup skim milk
- 1 cup shredded low-fat sharp cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon rubbed sage (optional)
- 1 lb extra lean ground beef
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine egg substitute and milk together in a bowl.
- Stir in cheese, oats, chopped onions, salt, and sage.
- Crumble in beef and mix well. It will be a bit gooey at first, but will firm up as you work with it.
- Shape into 8 oval shaped loaves and put on a non-stick pan (a little non-stick spray helps to keep them from sticking!).
- Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.
- For OAMC:.
- To Freeze: Place the meat loaves in the casserole dish.
- Wrap with foil and freeze.
- To Reheat: Defrost overnight.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in the center.
- Cooked meat loaves (already topped with sauce) also freeze very well and then can be defrosted and heated in the microwave for a quick meal.
