How to Cook a Healthy Meatloaf: A Master Basic Meatloaf Recipe and 4 Easy Variations
Learn our 4 steps to cooking a healthier meatloaf recipe and how to add different flavors to a healthy, basic meatloaf recipe.
There’s a new way to make a great meatloaf. Purists focus on the meat, de-emphasizing the importance of the other fillers like breadcrumbs, vegetables and seasonings, but we look at meatloaf as an opportunity to sneak in some extra vegetables and whole grains and play with different flavors to give this classic a regular place on a healthy dinner table. See how we give meatloaf a modern makeover.
In just 30 minutes you can throw together a killer meatloaf that has a fraction of the calories and saturated fat of a traditional recipe. (Our Basic Meatloaf, for example, saves you 170 calories and 6 grams saturated fat per serving.) To get started, pick a flavor combo you want to try and follow our how-to instructions.
