The Best Skinny Meatloaf

meatloaf 2

My family loves meatloaf, especially this absolutely delicious one. Adding steak sauce to this meatloaf created the most amazing flavor! To make it skinny, I used extra lean ground beef, egg whites and homemade multi-grain bread crumbs. Each serving has just 162 calories, 4 grams of fat and 4 Weight Watchers SmartPoints.

Shopping Tips

I used the extra lean ground beef (96%) at Trader Joe’s. Most supermarkets sell very lean ground beef.

I love Milton’s multi-grain bread for the crumbs. Most supermarkets sell it or use your favorite bread. You could also use store bought bread crumbs for this recipe.
