Weeknight Favorite: Low Calorie, Low-Fat Awesome Tasting Greek-Style Meatloaf

IMG_2374

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I thought you might want to get back to some lighter weeknight fare. This meatloaf is amazing, and only 142 calories and 4 grams of fat per serving. I developed it for Laura’s Lean Beef Company, and it’s a hit. If you don’t like meatloaf, but you like feta cheese, Greek seasonings and herbs, you will love this dish. This recipe makes two meat loaves, so you can freeze one or give one to a friend. I gave my extra to my friend tennis friend, Heidi. She told me that she didn’t really like beef in recipes. When she tried it, she said that I changed her entire mind-set. When you make this recipe, you will see what I mean.
