Number of Servings: 4


    2 tsp olive oil, preferably extra virgin
    1 large onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tsp sugar
    1/2 lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
    1.5 lb. lean ground beef
    1 cup canned tomato sauce
    1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
    2 egg whites, lightly beaten
    1 tsp dried basil
    1 tsp kosher salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper (or to taste)


Makes 4 servings.

Preheat oven to 350.

Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion, garlic, and sugar, and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 10 minutes. Put onion mixture in a large bowl.

Heat the other 1 tsp oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add sliced mushrooms and cook until browned, about 6-7 minutes. Add mushrooms to onion mixture. Allow to cool for 5 minutes or so.

To the mushrooms and onions, add ground beef, 1/2 cup tomato sauce, breadcrumbs, egg whites, basil, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

Put mixture onto a baking sheet that has been sprayed with pan spray. Form into a loaf. Top the loaf with the remaining 1/2 cup of tomato sauce. Place in oven and bake 45-55 minutes. Allow to stand for about 10 minutes before slicing.
