Friday Food: Healthier Brown Sugar Meatloaf

By: Joel Luedke

Not being a meat loaf guy myself for a long time I have finally worked myself over that hump and jumped in on it.  For anyone trying to look at their macros and up their protein this is a great option for you and allows you usually more multiple meals to help you out in your week without having to cook each day.  Check this one out.

-3 tbsp packed brown sugar
-1/2 cup ketchup
-1 1/2 pounds lean grounded beef
-3/4 cup low-fat (1%) milk
-2 eggs
-1 1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 tsp ground black pepper
-1 small onion, chopped
-1/4 tsp ground ginger
-3/4/cup whole wheat bread crumbs
-1/4 cup chopped parsley

The Game Plan:
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
-Press brown sugar in the bottom of prepared loaf pan and spread ketchup over sugar
-Mix ground beef, milk, eggs, salt, ground pepper, onion, ginger, bread crumbs, and parsley thoroughly in a mixing bowl.  Shape into a loaf and place on top of ketchup.
-Bake in preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour.  An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F.
