You should always saute the onion and garlic before adding them to anything baked. It makes a huge difference in the flavor, and eliminates the bite of the garlic.

Hi! A friend of mine turned me on to adding oatmeal to the meatloaf mix. And like ANONYMOUS, I always chop and peppers.

if you invest in making or buying low carb breads (thinslimfoods.com) net carbs 1 or 2 per slice. Season and toast lightly, use grater or Ninja bullet to make bread crumbs.

I agree with Anonymous. Adding diced red, green or both peppers does add to the taste of a meatloaf. Also, in place of using bread, a friend turned me on to using uncooked oatmeal. I found it lightens the meatloaf. But I must say, I never tried mixing turkey and ground beef, so that is something I definitely have to try.

I would use ground chicken and instead of ketchup use tomato sauce and also use unsweetened almond milk to cut down on sugar. I would also use steel cut oat instead of bread.

TRY ADDING FINELY DICED RED OR GREEN PEPPERS TO THIS AND IT ADDS A LITTLE MORE TASTE TO IT.!! BELIEVE ME YOU WILL TASTE THE DIFFERENCE…AND USE OATMEAL WHICH IS LOWER IN CALORIES THAN 2 PIECES OFWHITE BREAD ..USE TO YOUR DISCRETION …IN FACT .EATING A BOWL OF PREFERABLY STEEL CUT OATMEAL IS ONE OF THE BEST LOW CALORIES HIGH FIBER FOOD DIABETICS CAN EAT AND HELP LOWER YOUR BLOOD SUGAR

Sounds very good, and Ginetteb's comment about making them smaller and putting them in a cupcake pan is a GREAT idea. This is something I will certainly try. With being a single parent and working full time, it is sometimes tough to make "home cooked" meals in short amounts of time.
Thanks!

This sounds very good and I will try it. But instead of putting the meat in a 9"x5" loaf dish, I usually make balls of approx. 4oz and put them in a cupcake pan. They make individual meat loaf and whatever is not eaten, I can freeze for later. I just re-heat them in the microwave for whatever minutes it takes on 1/2 power.
