Marvelous Meat Loaf

Now that the weather is getting colder, it's time to go into those hearty recipes. So, Sunday night, I made this meat loaf that was just delicious! I used extra lean beef and seasonings and it was just great. You can double it to serve 4, but since I'm one person, I made the recipe to serve just me (and some leftovers).



Meat Loaf
Serves 2–3

10 oz extra lean ground beef, 93% lean
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 egg white(s)
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 tsp Dijon Mustard, divided
5 Tbsp ketchup, divided
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil Garlic seasoning blend

Preheat oven to 375F. Combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg white, Worcestershire sauce, 2 teaspoons mustard, 3 tablespoons ketchup, garlic powder and Mrs. Dash. Mix well. Line a baking sheet or pan with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Form beef mixture into a 7-inch loaf on the prepared sheet. Combine the remaining 1 teaspoon mustard and 2 tablespoon ketchup in a small bowl. Spread onto top of meat loaf.

Bake meat loaf until cooked through, about 40 minutes. Let meat loaf stand for 5 minutes before serving. Cut into slices to serve.

(For those of you counting points, it's 5 points when serving 3.)
