Saturday Night Specials


When my daughter was young she would come home and beg for meat loaf. Never being much of a meat loaf fan, I would talk her into something else. Can't really recall what it was, the mess or the fact that we would have leftovers for weeks. Not today, left over meat loaf is a thing from the past. I decided to make this meat loaves in individual tart tins instead to just change it up a little. You are saying looks just like a hamburger, not the case at all with loads of flavor and it is so lean and juicy. I am beginning to think it is the pan that I am afraid of. Get the BBQ ready no need to heat up the house. The man was so excited low in carbs and calories and high in protein. This recipe makes four mini loaves and each one is 241 in calories. I found this recipe in an old 2006 Light and Tasty Magazine.

I am sorry I am sorry yesterday we were having a lot of computer issues and when I gave a shout to the changeabletable.blogspot.com . I put the link in incorrectly. Go by today she always has fun and appealing to the taste buds goodies.

Grilled Meat Loaves

1 egg white
1/3 cup fat-free milk
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 slice rye bread, crumbled
1/4 cup grated carrot
11/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 pound lean ground beef
SAUCE
2 tablespoons ketchup
41/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon prepared mustard

In a large bowl, combine the egg white, milk and horseradish. Stir in the bread, carrot, onion, parsley, salt and pepper. Crumble beef over the mixture and mix well. Shape into four small loaves.
Grill loaves, covered, over medium-hot heat or broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 8 minutes. Turn; cook 8 minutes longer. Combine the sauce ingredients; spoon over loaves. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160.

Hot summer weather, the grill and your meatloaf recipe were made for each other. This looks awfully good.

My mother used to make meatloaf patties, but putting them on the grill~that's pure genius. We'll certainly have to give that a try as we're big meatloaf fans here.
