Yes, I made something called Meatloaf Melts. Might sound weird but I assure you, it is the most delicious meal on the face of the earth! Comfort food at it's finest. And what's even better is that I was able to lighten it up to make it weight watcher friendly. This recipe was a hit with the family. Give it a try and see for yourself!
Cal 435, Carbs 29, Fat 13.1, Fiber 2, Protein 47.3
2.5 lbs lean ground beef or turkey (I did half extra lean turkey 96/4 and half lean 93/7 ground beef)
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tbsp. worsterchire sauce
1 tbsp. ketchup
1/4 bbq sauce, divided
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. red pepper flakes (optional)
6 slices sourdough bread
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup bbq sauce for topping
6 slices bakery sourdough bread
In a large bowl combine all ingredients except for cheese, 3 tbsp. bbq sauce, and bread.
Place meat mixture into a lightly greased loaf pan and top with remaining bbq sauce. Cook for 45-60 minutes at 375. Remove from oven. Let sit for five minutes. Remove from pan and slice.
To Assemble Sandwiches-Place one slice meatloaf onto one slice of bread. Top each slice with 2 tbsp. shredded cheese. Place under broiler and broil for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Enjoy!
