RECIPE #92: ON A DIET? WATCHING CALORIES? An American Classic: MEATLOAF & HOMEMADE BBQ SAUCE 315 calories per serving

I was surprised at how good this was. A healthy version of a favorite American classic.

I served it for lunch with pureed cauliflower (1 C cauliflower before cooking & pureeing is only 25 calories! TIP: Use frozen cauliflower for fast & easy prep.).

Also there's only half a meatloaf patty recipe shown in the photos.
