Home Style Meat Loaf

Home Style Meat Loaf

I never tire of creating new meat loaf recipes. Meat loaf is comforting as food gets, as far as I'm concerned. If you agree, then take comfort in this easy home style recipe.

Serves 6

16 ounces ground 90% lean turkey or beef
1/2 cup +1 tablespoon (2 1/4 ounces) dried fine bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
2 tablespoon Heinz Light Harvest Ketchup or any reduced-sodium ketchup
1 (12-ounce) jar Heinz Fat-Free Beef Gravy*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine meat, bread crumbs, celery, onion, parsley flakes, ketchup, and 1/4 cup beef gravy. Mix well to combine. Pat mixture into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 45 minutes. Evenly spoon remaining gravy over meat loaf. Continue baking for 10 to 15 minutes. Place loaf pan on wire rack and set for 5 minutes. Divide into 6 servings.
