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 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
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
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.
Stir together mustard, and ketchup in a small bowl. Pour over meatloaf.
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).
