This meatloaf doesn’t take long to make and is healthier with lean ground beef, low-fat milk, whole wheat bread crumbs, some fresh parsley, and carrot. You can also use ground turkey, if you prefer.


1 ½ pounds lean ground beef

1 egg

1 onion, chopped

1 cup low-fat or skim milk

1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

½ cup chopped fresh parsley

1 large carrot, grated

1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste

2 Tablespoons mustard

⅓ cup ketchup


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

Step 2

Combine beef, egg, onion, milk, bread crumbs, parsley, and carrot in a large bowl. Season with salt and black pepper. Place beef mixture in loaf pan.

Step 3

Stir together mustard, and ketchup in a small bowl. Pour over meatloaf.

Step 4

Bake in preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 1 hour. A thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
