Here’s a simple recipe that uses simple ingredients most of which can be found in your pantry. I was wondering what to make for dinner and really want meatballs so I looked through some cookbooks and got the idea to make these. They are 1 weight point per meatball and they are super yummy. Completely 100% hubby approved. Serve with a nice side of rice and mixed vegetables for a healthy dinner with the family.
1 large Egg White
1/2 cup of Rice Krispies
2 tablespoons of Ketchup
2 tsp of freshly minced Ginger or Ginger in a jar
1 tablespoon of finely chopped onion
1 tsp of Horseradish
1 tsp of Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 tsp of Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 pound of Extra Lean Ground Beef
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix.
Roll mixture into ten 1 – 1.5 inch balls and place in a greased pan (I use my stoneware since I don’t need to grease it and it cooks evenly throughout).
I know here we go again with yet one more meatloaf recipe. This one is spicy and made to serve, no cutting required. I use an 8 individual mini loaf pan so I don’t have to cut the meat loaf. It saves time and all that mess. Plus it is great for portion control. The best part is that 2 individual loaves are 5 weight watcher points. Serve this with a side of salad and you have a great cozy home cooked meal.
1/4 cup of water
1 Cup finely chopped mushrooms
1 celery stalked finely chopped
1 large carrot finely chopped
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 pound extra lean ground beef
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
2 large egg whites
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
1 tablespoon of worcestershire sauce
4 garlic cloves minced
1 teaspoon of rosemary
1 teaspoon of savoury
1 teaspoon of thyme
1/2 teaspoon of hot sauce
approximately 1/4 cup of tomato sauce (careful not to get the sauce on the sides of the pan, as you can see I got some sauce on the pan and it darkened a bit.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Spray a mini 8 piece loaf pan.
In a large pan add the water, and all the finely chopped vegetables and cook for 5 mins.
Drain the water from the vegetables.
In a large bowl add the vegetables with all remaining ingredients except for the tomato sauce.
Mix ingredients and add even amounts to the 8 individual loaf pan
Place in oven and cook for 30 mins.
Remove from oven and distribute the tomato sauce on top of the individual loafs. About 1 – 1.5 teaspoons and spread so the tops are covered.
Replace loaf pan in the oven and cook for another 30 mins.
