    Recipe Introduction

    This ultra easy meatloaf gets it's pizazz from everyday ingredients. Who says we need unusual ingredients to stir up unusually good dishes?!?
    Serves 6

    List of Ingredients

    • 16 ounces ground 90% lean turkey or beef
    • 1/4 cup Hormel Bacon Bits
    • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion*
    • 15 Ritz Reduced Fat Crackers, made into crumbs
    • 6 tablespoons Heinz Light Harvest Ketchup or any reduced-sodium ketchup*
    • 1/4 cup skim milk
    • 1/4 cup white viniger
    • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine meat, bacon bits, 1/2 cup onion, cracker crumbs, 2 tablespoons ketchup, and skim milk. Mix well to combine. Pat mixture into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes. About 10 minutes before meatloaf is done, in a large skilled sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, saute remaining 1/4 cup onion for 5 minutes.

    HINT: a self-seal sandwich bag works great for crushing crackers.
