Barbecued Meatloaf

Barbecued Meatloaf

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

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

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. Add remaining 4 tablespoons ketchup, vinegar, parsley flakes, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well to combine. Bring mixture to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place loaf pan on a wire rack. Drizzle sauce mixture evenly over top. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cut into 6 pieces.

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