Meatloaf is the quintessential American meal. It’s nostalgic, hearty and just plain delicious. Most families have their special way to prepare it. I’m using a few flavorful and healthy twists. The first is to use barbecue sauce instead of the usual ketchup. It’s such a small change but adding the barbecue sauce makes it taste extraordinary. Next, you’ll save a tremendous amount of calories and fat by free forming the meatloaf. If you prepare it the way your Grandma did, in a loaf pan, the fat soaks into the loaf. With this new way, all the excess fat is left on the pan not in the loaf and then in your stomach. In addition, using lean ground turkey for ground beef cuts the fat. Just by making meatloaf this way, you save over 250 calories and more astounding 38 grams of fat per serving. The skinny for a generous 3 slice serving is 244 calories, 3.3g fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.
