Recipe of the Week: Individual Salsa Meat Loaves

October 9, 2010

Here is a recipe I got from myrecipes.com.  I tweaked it a little bit from the original and it was delicious.  Chris, who protests any time he hears the words “meat loaf” even like it!  These are made as individual loaves instead of one large one which reduces cooking time and keeps the meat a little juicier.  We added some steamed asparagus and a whole grain roll for a complete dinner!

 

 

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 meat loaf)

Ingredients

  • 2  large egg whites
  • 1/3  cup  quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2  cup  plus 2 tablespoons chipotle salsa, divided – I used Pace’s Pineapple Mango Chipotle Salsa.**
  • 1/4  cup  ketchup, divided
  • 1  pound  ground beef, extra lean – I used lean ground turkey instead.**
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350°.

2. Combine egg whites in a large bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Stir in oats, 1/2 cup salsa, and 2 tablespoons ketchup. Add beef; mix well. Divide beef mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into an oval-shaped loaf. Coat a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Place loaves on prepared pan.

3. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until done.

4. Combine remaining 2 tablespoons salsa and remaining 2 tablespoons ketchup in a small bowl; spread mixture evenly over loaves.
