Weight Watchers Meatloaf Recipe
Recipe type: Main
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped white mushrooms
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 carrot, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (7% or less)
  • ½ cup quick cooking or old-fashioned oats (not instant)
  • 2 large egg whites (I use 1 whole egg instead)
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup (plus more for brushing on top)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves (not ground thyme)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder (or 1 teaspoon minced fresh)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  2. Get a 4.5 x 8.5 inch loaf pan and spray it with cooking spray, so the meatloaf does not stick to the pan.
  3. Get a large non-stick skillet and heat up the oil over medium heat. Add the onion, mushrooms, celery, and carrot to the skillet. Allow them to cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onions have softened significantly. Transfer this mixture to a mixing bowl.
  4. Add all of the remaining ingredients into the vegetable mixture and make sure to mix it well, until you have a fairly homogenous mixture.
  5. Take the meatloaf mixture and press it into your prepared loaf pan.
  6. Bake the meatloaf for 30 minutes, after which you will brush some additional ketchup over the top of it, then continue baking for another 30 to 45 minutes. How long it has to bake does vary from oven to oven, but when the meatloaf is done, it should read 160° Fahrenheit in the middle, which you can measure using a simple cooking thermometer.
  7. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and let it sit for roughly 5 minutes, until cool enough to cut and eat.
