I love meatloaf, and so I made it this afternoon. We had it for dinner tonight. It is 3 points per serving (WW Blue Plan). Here’s the recipe:
2 lb. ground beef, 96% lean (20 points)
6 slices light bread (1 point per slice = 6 points total)
4 eggs (0 points)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion (0 points)
1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper (0 points)
Salt/pepper/garlic salt – to taste (0 points)
Instructions: Dump all ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Use hands to mix well (I wear gloves). Season (salt, pepper, garlic salt, etc.) to your preference. Form two loaves. Each loaf has four servings. Bake at 325 degrees for about 60 minutes – or until meat thermometer placed in the center of the loaf register 160 degrees.
I usually cook one loaf and wrap the other loaf in aluminum foil and freeze it for another meal in a couple weeks.
Points: 26 points total for 8 servings. That equals to 3.25 points per serving. So if you have two servings, that would be 6.5 points which would round off to 7.
Tomato Topping For Meatloaf
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper
salt/pepper – to taste
Instructions: Combine ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes. You can cook longer if you want the onion and pepper to be softer. Spoon over meatloaf when served. Points – 0 points for each 1/2 cup serving
