Kalyn’s Best Meatloaf Recipe
Kalyn’s Best Meatloaf
(Makes 8-10 servings, recipe created by Kalyn)
2 pounds lean ground beef (I like ground chuck best)
12 oz package reduced fat pork sausage (I use Jimmy Dean 50% less fat sausage)
1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (I make my own from low carb bread. If you want to reduce the carbs even more, you could use less bread crumbs.)
1 pkg. Lipton onion soup mix (dried mix)
1 can Campbells cream of mushroom soup (I don’t use low fat or low sodium)
1 T garlic powder
salt-pepper to taste
In food processor, blend onion soup to grind up onion pieces, then add bread crumbs and buzz a few times so bread is in small particles.
Add bread crumb/onion soup mixture, mushroom soup, egg, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to bowl containing the meat and mix together by squeezing with your hands so all ingredients are well combined. Shape into two loaves and bake about 1 hour, or until instant read meat thermometer reaches at least 170.
South Beach Suggestions:
I created this recipe long before I ever heard of the South Beach diet, and nowdays I rarely use ingredients like Lipton Onion Soup and canned mushroom soup. Still, this is a pretty family friendly recipe, and I think you could eat it once in a while for phase 2 or 3 of the diet.
