Meatloaf with Carmelized Onions and Mushrooms

Ready to go into the oven

Ready to eat!

This meatloaf is very hearty and gives a huge portion. I am not much of a mushroom fan, but they sure taste good in this recipe!

serves 6 ( 6 points + )

  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp. sugar
  • ½ lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1-½ lbs lean ground beef ( at least 93% lean)
  • 1 c. tomato sauce
  • ½ c. plain dry bread crumbs
  • 2 eg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper

Preheat oven to 375 and spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
Meanwhile, heat 1 tsp. oil in a large skillet coated with cooking spray. Add the onions, garlic and sugar; cook until golden ( about 10 minutes). Remove onions from skillet. Heat remaining teaspoon of oil and cook mushrooms until tender. Place mushrooms and onions in a large bowl. Add ground beef, bread crumbs, egg whites, basil, salt, pepper and ½ c. tomato sauce. Mix by hand and form into a loaf. Place in baking dish. Top with remaining ½c. tomato sauce. Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour or until desired doneness.

  4. I made this recipe tonight for dinner and it was delicious! Perfect for a weeknight dinner. We ate with white rice and salad! The only change I made was that I made my own tomato sauce because I don't like the ready to eat canned ones. :)
    Thank you!
