In order to eat a little healthier I have been trying out a few modified versions of "standby" recipes that my family typically eats. Meatloaf is one of those. With only 200 calories and 7 grams of fat in 1/8 of the recipe, it is much healthier than the ground beef version I previously made.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 large onion, chopped (1 1/2 cups)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons ketchup, divided
- 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey, 97% lean
- 3/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
- 2 tablespoons Italian herb seasoning
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 375°. In skillet soften onion over medium heat (about 5 minutes) Add garlic, salt and pepper and cook an additional minute.
Stir in Worcestershire sauce, broth, and 1 tablespoon ketchup, allow to cool.
In large mixing bowl add sauce/onion mixture to turkey, breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, egg and egg white. The mixture will be very moist.
Add meat mixture to loaf pan (or form into a loaf on a baking sheet.) Brush surface with remaining 2 tablespoons ketchup.
Bake 1 hour or until thermometer inserted into center registers 170°. I served my meatloaf with the good old standby of mashed potatoes and broccoli. A great healthy "comfort food" meal!
