Stephanie's sweet cheat meatloafSubmitted by: KATYSMOM26
IntroductionI couldn't get my husband to eat traditional meatloaf, so I played around with different things until I came up with this. I originally made it with ground chuck, but we are trying to be healthier so I switched it up, I cut down the sauce and used leaner meats. This recipe feeds my family of 7 I couldn't get my husband to eat traditional meatloaf, so I played around with different things until I came up with this.

2.25 pounds Ground meat. I am using a combination of equal parts lean beef and turkey but you can use whatever works best for you.
4 slices of 100% whole wheat bread
2 tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. grape jam
3 tbsp. barbeque sauce
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp yellow mustard
seasonings to taste ( salt, pepper, Mrs. dash) depends what you like.
If you change ingredients around don't forget the nutritional info will change. The way I used to make this had almost 500 calories per serving. now it is down to 280. I don't think this is the healthiest recipe but, it is a lot better than it used to be, and it is super yummy ( at least my family thinks so) Serve with veggies ( or shred some up and mix them in)

whisk all sauce ingredients together, until combined
In a separate bowl mix together both meats, ( I usually use my hands for this) the cubes of bread you toasted, the egg, and a spoonful or 2 of the sauce. Don't over work it, this will make it tough. Just mix enough to combine.
Line a cookie sheet with foil. Shape mixture into a flat shaped loaf. It should take up most of your pan with an inch or 2 of space at the sides. the loaf will only be about an inch tall.
Brush remainder of sauce on top and around edges of your loaf. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes. ( I use a meat thermometer to know when it is done)
Serving Size: makes a large flat loaf divided into 8 even slices
