Good healthy alternative

I followed the recipe mostly but made some changes based on other posts:
1) used fresh portabella mushrooms (2 cups, I hope thats the right conversion from dry mushrooms in the recipe???)
2) Added ~3/4 cup of mixed red and green bell peppers
3) used beef broth for bulgar instead of water
4) used 1 teaspoon each of fresh sage and dried thyme instead of the 2 teaspoons of thyme
5) used 96% lean meat
Overall good. It was a little dry, next time I might now cook it quite as long and I will use more broth in the bulgar. I may skip the sage next time as well. It was potent. This was a large recipe. Since its just me and husband, I have lots of leftovers in the freezer :-)
Will make it again though in the future if I crave meatloaf.
