Meatloaf isn't too bad if you bake it on a rack or on a sheet pan (instead of a loaf pan)... that way the grease drips off and away, instead of the loaf sitting in it.
This recipe uses ground beef and isn't too bad... 4 servings and each serving is around 480 calories assuming you use the low-fat cream cheese and leave off the sour cream and cheddar toppings. You could add extra veggies to bulk it up if you wanted but I found each serving to be filling as written. ellysaysopa.com/2012/07/26/one-pot-creamy- taco-mac/
There is a recipe in the Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook that is to die for, it is soooooooo good. My husband makes it quite often. It is literally "half vegetables" and yet it has all the meaty yummy flavour of a traditional meatloaf. In fact I would venture to say it is my favorite meatloaf of ever. It's just that good. And only about 250 calories for a decent-sized piece.

Individual Salsa Meat Loaves
Posted by: RLLML508
2 large egg whites 1/3 cup quick-cooking oats 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. chipolte salsa, divided 1/4 cup ketchup, divided 1 pound ground beef, extra lean Cooking spray
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2. Combine egg whites in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Stir in oats, 1/2 cup salsa, and 2 Tbsp. ketchup. Add beef; mix well. Divide beef mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into an oval-shaped loaf. 3. Coat a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Place loaves on prepared pan. 4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until done. 5. Combine remaining 2 Tbsp. salsa and remaining 2 Tbsp. ketchup in a small bowl; spread mixture evenly over loaves.
Note: The secret to moist, juicy meatloaf is to handle the meat very gently.

HI everyone! Sooo..trying to "get in the groove" with all of this, and have already hit a "bump". Had planned to make meatloaf and baked potatoes for supper, until I realized how much fat is in meatloaf :( Any ideas of different menu item I can make with hamburger? We live in the country, and grocery shopping day is Friday, so kinda limited on ingredients. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!!
