Ingredients

    2 lbs. ground meat -- 85% to 90% lean works well. I've used beef, turkey, and combinations.
    1 cup TVP
    ¼ cup finely choppped onion or 1 Tbsp dehydrated onion flakes
    2 cloves garlic, minced, or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 tsp dry mustard powder
    1 tsp dried thyme
    1 tsp dried sage
    ½ tsp black pepper
    2 tsp salt
    2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
    2 tsp salt
    1 egg
    ¼ cup water or milk

Directions

Preparation:
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Using your hands is easiest, but don't overmix. Bake in a loaf pan, several small loaf pans, or make individual ones. Bake at 350 F for about 1 hour for a large loaf. (Some people say that baking it longer at 325 F produces a better texture. I have not tried this.) Muffin-cup meatloaves cook in about 15 to 20 minutes. To be sure the meatloaf is done, insert a meat thermometer, which should reach 155 F in the center of the loaf.

About 10 to 15 minutes before you think the meatloaf will be done, you can cover it with sugar-free picante sauce.
