Clean Texas Meatloaf




We visited the most adorable little thrift shop in Eagle’s Nest while in New Mexico. Almost everything was less than $2. I have been adding them into the wardrobe ASAP :)





So when we got home, this was the first thing I cooked. It has been a weekly staple lately. This one is lean, mean recipe and the whole fam will love it. Oh yeah, and it is competition approved, clean eating ;)


Clean Texas Meatloaf



Ingredients:

• 1 lbs extra lean ground beef
• ¼ cup egg whites (or you can use 1 whole egg)
• ½ cup old fashioned oats
• 1 tsp salt
• ¼ tsp pepper
• 1 tsp onion powder
• 1 tsp garlic powder
• 10 oz can Rotel (diced tomatoes and green chilies)
• ¼ cup tomato sauce (you can sub catsup, just use no sugar added)
• 1 tbsp mustard
• 1 tbsp Splenda (or any other sugar substitute)

What you do:

Preheat oven to 350* F. In a large bowl, mix everything but the last 3 ingredients. I like to use my hands- wash up! Then form into a loaf shape onto a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. In the same bowl, mix the last 3 ingredients and spread over the top. Bake for 1 hour or until cooked through.

I mixed in some light Thousand Island dressing on this batch, pretty tasty ;)









The daughter likes to make hers a meatloaf "sammich" on King's Hawaiian Rolls. Smart kid.
