Savory Easy Meatloaf

I realize that sometimes we cringe at the word meatloaf because when someone says the word meatloaf, usually we think, “hmmm what’s in that?!” Am I right? I never enjoyed the taste of “sweet” meatloaf as a kid, and unless I have unjustly observed, I’m pretty sure almost every kiddo out there dislikes it as well! 😉 Here’s a recipe however that changed my meatloaf world and one your family will be asking you to make over and over again! This is an S main dish!

Big Bonus: It’s SO easy to prepare!

Preheat the oven to 350, then grease your loaf pan. I use a 9×5. I took a picture of my handy dandy spritzer too because you all should seriously consider owning this little guy! I put olive oil in it and it’s so nice to have for easy greasing. William Sonoma carries them I think.

Next dump all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Now y’all, I know you’re eyeballing those oats in this “S” meatloaf, but don’t panic!! It’s totally OK because distributed throughout the whole dish, you’re still safe to eat as an S! (Ends up being around 3.8g carbs per serving – 9×5 makes 6 servings.)

Pat into your greased loaf pan and bake it baby!

I love to serve with green beans steamed in olive oil and garlic salt. This is also great paired with Cauliflower & Cheese and/or Almond Flour Cheese Biscuits! Talk about some yuuuum comfort food! Yeehaw.

      Hi Adeana, here are some alternatives to tomato sauce:

      For 1 cup sauce substitute 1/2 cup tomato paste mixed with 1/2 cup water. You can also do 1 cup tomato puree, or use 1 cup tomato puree, or 1 cup canned, stewed tomatoes blended to a smooth consistency.

      Credit for the above goes to Gourmet Sleuth!
