Meatloaf Remake

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend. As the summer nears to a close, I have been thinking about how to make my favorite comfort meals for the colder months that wont be too loaded down in calories. I don't know the numbers or anything but I know this recipe is much healthier than how I used to make it. What is it ? you ask , meatloaf. So here is an idea that I hope you all enjoy and my family does too. You will need 90 percent lean ground beef or turkey breast make sure its all 100 percent breast meat. Some companies like to throw in the fat from the turkey which defeats the purpose of eating healthy and also watch out for the same thing chicken. Ok back to my meatloaf, you will need a cup of instant oats (not flavored), 1 cup of beef bullion low sodium dissolved in water. All these veggies you want minced, garlic, celery, carrot and onion. Mix the veggies together with the meat and oats and add an egg and the bullion, if it seems a little wet add more oats and add 2 tablespoons or more depending on if it turns dry of tomato sauce (low sodium). Add seasonings of oregano, basil, pepper and a touch of salt to your taste. After your mixture is all mixed up add it to a loaf pan top with fresh tomato slices and Parmesan cheese. Bake for an hour on 350. You can serve this with a salad and green beans or baked sweet potatoes whatever you and your family likes. My family likes baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon and green beans cooked in lemon juice. I hope you enjoy this recipe and I hope for all of those like myself that are watching calories can still enjoy a few small comforts we all enjoy in the fall and winter months. I hope you all take care and live , laugh and love along your journey.
