Meatloaf is the quintessential American meal. It’s nostalgic, hearty and just plain delicious. Most families have their special way to prepare it. Here at Skinny Kitchen we have a few flavorful and healthy twists. The first is to use barbecue sauce instead of the usual ketchup. It’s such a small change but adding the barbecue sauce makes it taste extraordinary. Next, you will save a tremendous amount of calories and fat just by free forming the meatloaf. If you prepare it the way your Grandma did in a loaf pan, the fat soaks into the loaf. With this new way, all the excess fat is left on the pan not in the loaf and then in your stomach. We also substitute lean ground turkey for ground beef. Finally, we recommend that you line the pan with foil so clean up is a breeze. Just by making meatloaf the Skinny Kitchen way you will save over 250 calories and more astounding 38 grams of fat per serving!
